On Safety

The On Safety blog has moved.


October 31, 2012

The National Safety Council recently kicked off a celebration of its 100-year anniversary, which coincides nicely with this blog entry – my 100th post.

I’ve been blogging since S+H’s website launched in January 2011, and I’ve enjoyed the opportunity to reflect and share some thoughts about what is happening at the intersection of the occupational safety world and politics. I know speaking about politics in relation to something that isn’t inherently political (i.e., preventing injuries and saving lives) may come across as unwarranted, but I feel it’s important to understand the role that politics and government plays in protecting its citizens.

I hope I’ve offered some insightful views in my first 100 posts; I certainly will attempt to do so for the next 100.

As always, let me know your thoughts in the comments or shoot me an email at [email protected].
