I am pleased to announce that LexisNexis has recognized this blog as one of the “Top Blogs for Workers’ Compensation and Workplace Issues” for 2014.
According to LexisNexis, this year’s honorees include “the best of the best—those legal blogs that provide insightful analysis and those business-oriented blogs that offer valuable tidbits of practical information and best practice tips for employers, insurers, risk managers and other professionals.”
In recognizing our blog, LexisNexis notes that “members of the practice group offer a plethora of posts on workplace safety and related concerns” and highlights several recent blog entries including posts about Black Friday safety policies and issues for retailers, employer strategies to address Ebola in the workplace, and OSHA’s new guidance on hospital safety issues, among others.
We are very honored that others value the content of our blog. We know that employee safety is of utmost concern to most employers and those issues, combined with increased regulatory and enforcement pressures from the Occupational Health & Safety Administration, mean employers are seeking information they can use to help prepare and protect their businesses, now more than ever.
Our blog can be the first step in gathering important information. Our posts are an extension of the full gamut of occupational safety and health law services my colleagues and I in Epstein Becker Green’s Occupational Safety and Health (OSHA) practice offer to a diverse range of clients throughout the United States, from counseling on safety and health matters to representing management in safety and health litigation arising out of enforcement actions in both federal and state OSHA-administered plans.
