In the Speaking of Safety blog, I hope to share the stories of the people behind the scenes of workplace health and safety.
The blog is written by me, Susan Main, a professional writer based in Vancouver, BC, Canada. I’ve cared about this topic since 1998 when I wrote my first article for WorkSafeBC’s WorkSafe Magazine.
Since then, I’ve talked to hundreds of people in different industries, and many of their stories will stay with me forever.
In this blog, I’d like to share more stories in the hope of starting conversations that might lead to real change. Please use the blog’s “comment” function to share your own opinions and anecdotes, post questions to the community, offer suggestions, and express your views on what you read here (see the Comment Policy for more info). And please e-mail me directly if you have ideas for future articles.
Thanks to WorkSafeBC for sponsoring this blog and giving me a chance to tell these stories. Please note that I am not a health and safety professional and any opinions expressed by me, the people I write about, or my readers are not necessarily the opinions of WorkSafeBC.
