Appreciation for Safety Professionals on Labor Day
OSHA's website states Labor Day "...is a day to reflect on how workplace conditions have improved over the course of our nation’s history, and to look ahead at what we can do to continue making workers’ lives better."
With this description, Labor Day is really a day of appreciation for all safety and health professionals. Although our profession has gotten a lot more attention recently due to the Covid-19 crisis, many people have no idea what we do and the effect our efforts have on workplace safety. We have made great strides and workplaces are much safer than they were in the past. Of course, we still have work to do but none of that work would get done and progress would not be made without safety professionals like you!

It’s that time of year again when OSHA unveils their top citations. Although the safety and health world is moving away from focusing so much on compliance, “the top ten” can still be used to highlight areas and programs in the workplace that may need extra attention. The “top ten” for 2023 has not changed much from previous years. The same ten standards are still in this year’s top ten but the order has changed slightly. The infographic below shows OSHA’s most recent “Top Ten.”
