Safety is HOT.

I'm so excited about this community taking off - I really want to see it succeed. But there's only so much I can contribute personally to a safety community, since I work at a desk 9 to 5 and my biggest safety concern at work is not getting paper cuts.

This is what it's all about

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
