Listening to podcasts is a great way to consume content on the go. I'm glad company owners and safety managers use this new tool to make their workplaces safer.
Beaverton, OR (PRWEB) March 03, 2016
The Safety Brief, a podcast about occupational safety and health, released an episode titled “Chemical Hazards and Emergency Planning” last week. This episode was the semi-weekly podcast’s 200th episode since it began in May of 2014.
The episode discusses safety at facilities that store chemicals. The discussion was prompted by a report from the U.S. Chemical Safety Board (CSB) about the explosion at the West Fertilizer Company in Texas in 2013. Listeners will learn about the CSB’s recommendations for storing chemicals and working with local emergency response agencies for emergency planning. The episode is available for download from iTunes and from The Safety Brief’s website.
Over the past two years, The Safety Brief has covered workplace safety topics including personal protective equipment, forklift safety, injury and illness prevention programs, hazardous chemical labeling, common OSHA violations, arc flash and technology for the safety industry. Each three to four-minute episode provides news, tips or best practices for dealing with safety in the workplace. The Safety Brief aims to help safety managers, contractors, businesses owners and others in the safety community find ways to improve the workplace.
“Our podcasts have exploded in popularity. Listening to podcasts is a great way to consume content on the go,” Dan Clark, The Safety Brief’s host, said. “I’m glad company owners and safety managers use this new tool to make their workplaces safer.”
Since its inception, The Safety Brief has had over 30,000 downloads. New listeners can find an archive of all 200 episodes, as well as links to supplemental resources, at https://www.thesafetybrief.com.
