Workplace Safety is a Moving Target

Just when you thought workplace safety couldn't get any more complicated, OSHA is now looking at safety incentive programs as a source of potential violations. But as crazy as that sounds, their arguments do make some sense. Clearly, "safety" is a moving target, and what works for one site or employee group may not work for another.

Young workers are a good example. A recent study shows many thousands of young workers are injured or killed every year, and they need specialized safety training and supervision to help keep them safe. You'll find information on these topics and more in this month's Connection.
Have a safe month
