NIOSH PPE Tracker App


The NIOSH PPE Tracker mobile app can help healthcare and non-healthcare systems track their personal protective equipment (PPE) inventory. Facilities can use the app to calculate their average PPE consumption rate or “burn rate.” The app estimates how many days a PPE supply will last given current inventory levels and PPE burn rate. Based on the PPE Burn Rate Calculator Excel spreadsheet, the app features several improvements, including an easy-to-use interface and the ability to add restock.

The app is available for both iOS and Android devices.

Key Features

With the NIOSH PPE Tracker app, you can

  • Track different types of PPE, such as gowns, gloves, surgical masks, respirators, face shields, and more
  • Track inventory by number of boxes or number of individual units
  • Add restock when calculating inventory totals
  • Calculate burn rate by type of PPE (such as gloves) and for specific units (such as small gloves)
  • Calculate PPE burn rate by the number of patients being treated and track changes in PPE usage as the number of patients fluctuates
  • Download inventory and burn rate data and share reports via email
