Unauthorised use of SafetyAtWorkBlog articles

Recently, I had to demand that an Australia OHS news website remove the SafetyAtWorkBlog articles that it had republished on its website without my permission.

I appreciate the thanks I receive for writing this blog but if you wish to republish anything other than excerpts, please contact me.  The copyright statement that accompanies every SafetyAtWorkBlog is not for decoration and will be enforced as much as it can.

Just please ask for permission.  I am not unreasonable.

Please remember that I am a freelance writer and you are welcome to commission me to write OHS articles for you exclusively.

One thought on “Unauthorised use of SafetyAtWorkBlog articles”

  1. Hi Kevin,

    When I am working for an employer I strictly adhere to copyright requirements in the protection of its intellectual property.

    However, in the case of a Safety Blog I would have thought that such a humanist field demands the unfettered exchange of ideas and opinions.

    Whatever I write in the public domain – if it is of value- I hope it is used by other people.

    If one becomes too protective about intellectual property on a Blog such as this one, it may suggest that perhaps the Blog is self serving – a vehicle for personal professional advancement.
