Because PHA-Web is web-based software, it runs in a web browser. Rather than requiring a particular operating system version or hardware platform, PHA-Web requires a browser that supports modern web standards. Most personal computers and mobile devices available today are more than sufficient to access PHA-Web. Simply stated – computers capable of running the latest version of an Internet browser will run PHA-Web.
PHA-Web supports Google Chrome, Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft Edge, Firefox, and Safari. One or more of these browsers are available for workstations running Microsoft Windows (versions 7, 8, 8.1, or 10) or Apple macOS. Although PHA-Web does not require any one browser in particular, listed below are browser recommendations for common operating systems:
- Windows 10 can use Google Chrome, Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft Edge, or Firefox.
- Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 can use Google Chrome, Internet Explorer 11, or Firefox.
- Apple macOS should use Safari or Google Chrome.
Mobile Device Specifications
PHA-Web mobile applications utilize Android, Apple iOS or Windows style devices as optional equipment available for maintenance staff to use in the field while conducting inspections.

- Android devices should use Google Chrome.
- Apple iOS devices should use Safari or Google Chrome.
