Editor’s Note: A new look


If you’ve got the print or digital edition of Safety+Health in front of you, you’ll probably have noticed that parts of it are a bit different.

In June, the National Safety Council unveiled “a new look for the next chapter of safety and a renewed commitment to eliminating the leading causes of preventable death and injury focused on the workplace, roadway and impairment.”

More from NSC:

The new look pays homage to the heritage of the green cross while incorporating a modernized appearance representing the four NSC values as symbolized by the four corners that, together, form a cross. The NSC values are: Be Safe – a commitment to our mission of safety; Be Bold – to challenge the status quo; Be Impactful – to exceed expectations; and Be NSC – to collaborate with others to achieve results.

The S+H team has changed the magazine’s logo and freshened up our pages to reflect NSC’s new visuals and color scheme. Big thanks go to Senior Graphic Designer Mike Sharkey, who did the heavy lifting on this project. He truly lived the “Be NSC” value by proposing several new versions of the S+H logo, then listening patiently and open-mindedly to numerous (and differing) opinions, and incorporating feedback and ideas until everyone agreed on the design you see now. We also appreciate the input of Betsy Freed, Jim Chapleau and Brett Vence of the NSC marketing department under the direction of Tom Bell.

S+H may look different, but our mission – to provide quality content – remains the same. Thanks for reading.
