The history of Safety+Health magazine

100 Years of Safety+Health: The more things change...

50th anniversary cover

Every month during 2019, Safety+Health will be sharing bits of the magazine’s history from its first 100 years.

The 50th Anniversary issue of National Safety News, published in November 1969, features a retrospective that makes reference to the safety issues being discussed at the 1919 National Safety Congress (now the NSC Congress & Expo):

    “Many of the 1919 Congress papers could be retyped and presented at the 1970 Congress and still be relevant. Those papers covered such topics as supervisory training, machine guarding, protective clothing, dermatitis, safety standards and accident records.”

Fast-forward 50 years, and you’ll find those same topics still being covered in Safety+Health. As technology advances, standards change and prevention efforts evolve, we’ll continue to keep you up to date.
