Free! OSHA 1910 and 1926 App

Special thanks to commenter Seth, who alerted me to this app. Completely free, that has 1910 and 1926. I currently do not know if this is available for Android.

The app downloads the regs (about 32 meg), so it can be used without a connection.

Note – it has worked on my iPhone 5 but there are issues on my iPad. I will update if I learn anything. Also, if anyone knows if this is on Android, let me know and I will update this post.

Thanks again Seth:
