Editor's Note: Trying again

More than once I’ve ended this column by saying that I or other members of the Safety+Health team would love to hear from you. In one particular instance, however, I haven’t backed up that statement.

Several years ago, I announced the creation of a Safety+Health Reader Panel. The goal was to establish a group of highly engaged readers – representing various industries, areas of expertise and years of experience – who were willing to give us 15-30 minutes of their time roughly once a month to tell us what they like about the magazine and what we can do to improve it.

During that time, and beyond, we experienced several complications regarding the organization of the Reader Panel. But the end result is that the ball was dropped, and the responsibility for that lies with me. I apologize to all of you who expressed an interest in the panel and never received a response.

We’re trying again, and this time we’ll do better. At the bottom of any page on the S+H website, you’ll find a Join the Reader Panel link. If you’re interested in becoming a member of the panel, I invite you to click on the link and submit a form.

(To allow us to have meaningful interaction with the members, the size of the panel will be limited, and we’ll be learning and making adjustments as we go.)

“Continuous improvement” is a phrase the S+H team hears frequently as we follow and report on news and trends in the occupational safety and health community. It’s the goal for this publication as well – and with your help, we’ll keep working to make S+H an even more useful tool in your efforts to keep workers safe and well.
