Follow along as OH&S editors Sydny Shepard and Amanda Smiley discuss the top three safety trends of 2019 sponsored by Avery Industrial.

'Tis the season for reflection as the end of the year rapidly approaches. OH&S Associate Content Editor Amanda Smiley and I sat down to take a look back at the year through the perspective of safety directors. We went all the way back to January 1, 2019 and pulled the analytics from our top articles, most highly attended webinars and most engaging social media posts from the year to put together a top three most trending topics of 2019.

In this podcast we break down each topic and discuss why we believe it topped the list this year. We are going to keep the top three a surprise so you can guess along with us as we count them down in the podcast, but here are are the topics that helped to round out the top ten.

  • Incident Safety Reporting
  • Hearing Protection
  • Respiratory Protection
  • Technology Trends
  • Hazard Communications
  • Facility Safety
  • Lockout/Tagout
