Appreciation for Safety Professionals on Labor Day
September 07, 2020
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!

The loss of even one hour of sleep has been shown to cause an increase in health problems and accidents. The week after daylight savings time can be particularly worrisome with respect to workplace health and safety. Fatigue is always something to be concerned about but especially after the clocks spring ahead by one hour. The following infographic addresses fatigue in the workplace. Share this freely and encourage others to pay special attention to the hazards of working while fatigued.
I am thrilled that the American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) has decided to include this piece in the December issue of Professional Safety Journal (PSJ). If you are studying for a certification exam, I hope it will give you a few ideas to help you study better, so you remember key information longer (even past the exam!) Good Luck!
