I am proud to inform you that the LexisNexis Workers’ Compensation Law Community has chosen SafetyAtWorkBlog as on of it “2010 honorees for the Top 25 Blogs for Workers’ Compensation and Workplace Issue“.
LexisNexis stated that:
“A winner last year as well, SafetyAtWorkBlog by Australian Kevin Jones is an excellent foreign OSHA and workers’ compensation product that features news and analysis of workplace issues on the other side of the globe. This straight forward Blog provides insight and informative content into international worker safety developments, marrying the law, business processes, medicine, and social concerns into thought provoking commentaries.”
In the blogosphere and in OHS there are few opportunities for kudos for writing about workplace safety issues. Many OHS organisations only communicate with members yet the profession is far larger than any one organisation. I write the SafetyAtWorkBlog because safety needs interpretation, sometimes even translation, and, perhaps even more importantly, that voice needs to be independent. The award from LexisNexis gives me hope that I am on the right track.
Please check out the other honorees at the LexisNexis site as several are new and are great sources of information
