New Online Safety Social Network Seeks Traction

Workplace safety professionals who want to interact with others in the profession more than just once a year at a trade show or conference now have a new resource: the Ansell Limited-sponsored Online Safety Community (www.safetycommunity.com), a free social network where PPE professionals can meet, share ideas, and work together to pioneer new ways of making workplaces safer and more productive.

The site is meant for safety managers, foremen, safety engineers, factory and construction workers, and anyone for whom workplace safety is a profession or passion. It allows members to stay up to date on emerging trends, learn about new safety products, and interact with PPE experts across different industries. Participation is sparse so far, but the site is still new.

"The Internet has revolutionized the way people get information. Think of the Ansell Online Safety Community as a customized 'MySpace' or 'Facebook' type site, but just for the workplace safety industry," said Phil Corke, senior VP, Human Resources, for Ansell Limited. "The Online Safety Community is a great stop for those interested in what's happening in the PPE and occupational safety industry -- straight from the people who live and breathe industrial safety."

The Online Safety Community went live in June with industry- and host-generated content. In July, it opened up to membership from all workplace safety professionals.
