Top News

Our first issue of 2012 deals with how the holidays impacted the way we do business, including using seasonal workforces as opportunities for “working interviews.” We also look at last year’s decrease in holiday celebrations and whether or not it impacted employee morale. Finally, we toast the December Jobs Report 2011, which gave us some positive changes we can be thankful for.

Safety Rules
Safety doesn't happen from behind a desk! Bogging down safety managers with excess paperwork and training duties can deter their focus from where it really needs to be. The more time a safety expert can spend in the middle of the action, the better chance your company has of identifying serious hazards and abating them before any injuries occur. Safety managers who take a "hands on" approach become more familiar with company processes and can quickly react to trending risks with practical and immediate corrective actions.
