For those Australians who are watching the latest political push for Industrial Manslaughter laws, it is important to remember that the activity has a history that extends over a decade. Many of the current arguments for and against have been addressed previously. In August 2004, the earlier iteration of this blog, Safety At Work magazine, printed a special edition on “The Australian Industrial Manslaughter Debate”. Below is an edited version of my Editorial in that magazine. A longer article on the issues raised in that edition is available elsewhere in the SafetyAtWorkBlog.
The SafetyAtWorkBlog has reached over 40,000 reads for this month, the largest in 10 years – a great achievement for an independent blog on a niche topic produced in Australia.
Thanks to all the subscribers and followers for your support.
The sixth video update of SafetyAtWorkBlog activity is now available for viewing below or at our YouTube channel.
In the update I bring you up to date with some of the recent blog coverage but also what I have been involved with over the last couple of months as well as some interesting conference coming.
No book mentions in this update but there will be a brief review of lots of books in the next update later this week.
I provide a quick summary of SafetyAtWorkBlog articles over the last month in this video update as well as mentioning a new OHS book that seems of interest and a mention of my involvement with the International Auditing Symposium.
The fourth video update of SafetyAtWorkBlog activity is now available for viewing below or at our YouTube channel. In the update I reflect on some of the current workplace safety blog topics and mention a couple of new books that I have received to review.
