Editor's Note

Editor’s Note: It’s always good to hear from you


In the years I’ve spent as editor of this magazine, I’ve invited you to get in touch with the Safety+Health team many times. And you’ve responded in many ways.

Just recently, for example, National Safety Council Marketing Insights Manager Michael Fitzgibbon sent out a readership survey to a large sampling of S+H subscribers. It was a detailed survey, with questions about reading habits, sections of the magazine, what you do and don’t want to read about, and what we’re doing right and what we need to change.

Completing the survey required a substantial time commitment, so to everyone who responded – our heartfelt thanks. We take your comments seriously, and we read each one. You help us get better.

Then there’s My Story, our monthly highlight of safety pros and their career journeys. Check out the stories we’ve published so far, and keep them coming! As our friend and All About You columnist Richard Hawk says, “Everyone has a story.” We want to hear yours.

And while I’ve got your attention: Are you a one-person safety department? We’d like to hear about your experiences – and challenges. If you’ve got stories or advice you’re willing to share, please get in touch. You could be featured in Associate Editor Barry Bottino’s upcoming article.

Even when we’re not directly asking for specific comments, we welcome feedback. It’s easy to get hold of us: S+H is on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram. And if you prefer email, our addresses are on p. 6 of the magazine and on our website. Whatever method you use to reach out, it’s always good to hear from you.
