The Safety Pro Blog on Safety Talk Ideas is focused on sharing ideas, personal development information, resources, tools, and more. If you choose to invest in yourself you will be better prepared to serve the employees you are meant to help protect from injury.
Continue Your Safety Career Education
Our goal at Safety Talk Ideas is to help you as a safety pro be more prepared, confident, and effective in your role. We aim to accomplish this through the content we share on the site and through our emails.
This site was built by a safety pro who wanted to help others in their role since he had a steep learning curve after landing his first safety job out of college. Because of that desire, the choice was made to be different than the bigger, more established workplace safety publications out there.
There will always be a need for materials put out by OSHA or awesome publications like EHS Today, but there is also a need for a site that speaks specifically to the pain points you experience as a safety pro out in the field.
Not the “Run of the Mill” Workplace Safety Blog Posts
Many of the posts found on the Safety Pro Blog below have a not-so-serious conversational tone to them on purpose. There is a hole in the market to help safety pros think outside the box, develop new ways to approach problems, and continue to develop in their role without having to present everything like a white paper report. Take time to browse the current posts below and check back monthly to see what content has been added!
