I'm so excited about this community taking off - I really want to see it succeed.

Great Safety Champions in Business and Unions impact our lives. Probably the best and most exciting innovation that I have seen was in Kansas City in the auto sector.

Last year was my first time attending the National Safety Council's annual Congress & Expo (known to most in the industry as just "NSC" or the National Safety Show). I was working at the Ansell booth and I enjoyed the opportunity to meet and interact with so many diverse safety professionals as they came by to play the U game challenge, check out technology demos or find out about the latest in protective gloves.
I remember seeing people meet up who hadn't seen each other since… Continue

Such calculations are relatively simple when data is “normally distributed”; b Continue
