Welcome to the one-year anniversary of EHS This Week! For 52 full weeks we’ve been bringing you essential news on all aspects of workplace health and safety, EHS legislation and regulation, and environmental and climate issues from around the world, not to mention developments in renewable energy. We’ve been blown away by all the feedback we’ve received over the course of the past year and want to thank all our loyal listeners for providing us with tons of questions and feedback.
On this week’s edition of EHS This Week we’ve got the week’s top stories in environment, health and safety news:
The devastating Bangladesh garment factory fire that killed over 100.
The Department of Labour works to improve worker safety awareness and prevent exploitation of immigrant workers in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
The EPA faces the possibility of another lawsuit on emissions controls, and more.
Remember to write us with your suggestions, questions and comments at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, if you are an industry expert and ever want to take part in the program, we’d love to have you.
Until next week, enjoy the program!
This week Kristy and I discuss interesting news on the effects of safety incentive programs, the fascinating impact of OSHA safety inspections on both the safety performance and bottom lines of organizations, OSHA’s new whistleblower protection advisory committee, and more.
