On Research

The "On Research" blog has been discontinued, but Safety+Health now publishes Q&As with Journal of Safety Research contributors under that name.

The end of the road

April 10, 2014

After more than four years writing for Safety+Health magazine, I’ve turned in my last feature article. Although I’m saying goodbye to the wonderful Publications team and the National Safety Council, I will never forget the lessons I’ve learned about workplace safety.

I’ve enjoyed sharing my observations on research with you through this blog, and I can’t say thank you enough to all of the brilliant researchers who took the time to walk me through their studies. Thank you also to all of the sources who have provided me with information for S+H articles, especially the safety professionals who’ve spoken candidly about their careers and views on the profession for the annual Job Outlook and Salary Survey articles. (Shameless plug: Check out the 2014 Job Outlook in the May issue of S+H.)

I also have to say thank you to my editors for fine-tuning my words and asking the right questions. And most of all, thank you to the readers of “On Research” and S+H for following my posts, commenting and being committed to keeping workers safe. It has been great to share this part of my journey with you!
