Yesterday, Apple Computer announced the released of its new iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch. Besides a much larger screen on both phone models, one of the new features that I’m looking forward to is the addition of the NFC capabilities on all 3 devices. NFC has the potential to dramatically change the profession of environmental, health and safety. So what is NFC? NFC stands for Near-Field Communication.

As a provider of EHS software, I often see EHS software projects suffer from what is known in the technology space as the “Hype Cycle.” The Hype Cycle is a branded graphical tool that was developed by the Gartner Group to represent the maturity, adoption, and social application of specific technologies (Fig 1).
