The Public Health Readiness Evaluation (PHRE) tool is an easy-to-use mobile application designed to help smaller organizations quickly assess and optimize their readiness to operate with minimal risk to workers, customers/patrons, and surrounding communities. The tool was adapted from a safety framework originally developed for small nanotechnology businesses, and includes in-kind efforts from leading risk scientists and mobile application developers.
