7 Blogs Every Safety Manager Should Be Reading

This is updated version of the original blog post published in August 2016.

When done correctly, blogs have the power to provide relevant and useful information about health and safety in a time efficient manner. Instead of surfing through websites after websites, you can just go through a well-written blog to acquire all the information in a neatly summarised view.

Here are some of the most informative and interesting blogs we think every safety manager should be reading.

1. Safety by EHS Today

EHS Today has the latest and the most up to date information about professional and occupational safety practices. This work safety newsfeed covers a number of measures that must be observed to ensure safety and security in a professional environment. In addition to workplace safety, the blog has interesting reads on risk management, safety management practices and safety trends, as well as leadership tactics that enable the safety culture to grow.


2. SafetyRisk

This blog is highly recommended for safety managers to read. 
It includes a wide range of topics related to safety, including workplace safety, risk management, occupational health and safety regulations, and much more. This makes it a great resource for safety managers who want to stay up-to-date on the latest developments in the field. The blog features contributions from experts in the field of safety, including experienced safety professionals and leading industry experts. This means that the content on the blog is reliable and based on real-world experience.


3. ProAct Safety

Although not the most visual one, this very well managed and to the point blog consists of a number of topics that can help leaders increase safety in their organisations by developing a more caring and nurturing attitude towards their employees. Run by author Terry L. Mathis, topics such as safety excellence and transformational leadership define how exemplary leaders differ in their attitudes towards employee health and safety.

4. EHSInsight

The blog by EHSInsight is a great resource for safety managers to read because it covers a wide range of topics related to environmental, health, and safety (EHS) management. The blog is regularly updated with new articles that provide valuable information and insights on various aspects of EHS, including occupational safety, regulatory compliance, risk assessment, and incident management. What's more is that the content is written by a team of EHS experts who have a wealth of experience in the field. 


5. Safety at Work Blog

Like the name suggests, this blog is focusing on all things safety at the workplace. You will not only find educational content and tips on safety, but also conversation starters on topics such as mental health, harassment and bullying at work. The Safety at Work Blog is intending to provide their readers with the best possible understanding of the considerations they need to make around health and safety, and where OHS might be falling behind.


6. Tap Into Safety

Tap Into Safety is utilising their expertise as safety trainers and educators to cover the most essential, and sometimes less discussed health and safety risks at the workplace. This blog has content on injury prevention, mobility considerations, contractor safety, as well as safety awareness education for everyone in the organisation.


7. The Blog by Falcony

We might be biased to nominate ourselves, but curating quality content is a passion for us at Falcony. Our goal is to help organisations adapt to the volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity (also known as VUCA) of their surroundings, and thus the blog features a vast array of topics such as safety management, incident management, involvement and learning from failure.
