EDITOR’S NOTE: Each month, the Safety+Health editorial team discusses important safety topics, and interviews leading voices in the profession.
In Episode 7, the Safety+Health team welcomes University of South Florida public health professor Marissa Levine to discuss how COVID-19 is impacting the mental health of workers and employers. Also, we examine how telling stories can make safety lessons stick.
