Safety News Roundup: June in Review

June 25, 2021
A look at what you wanted to know more about this month.

You’re looking to be more proactive and plan ahead. At least, that’s what our website data shows us.

You want to know more about summer safety, from heat protection to car accidents. There’s a reason why they call these months scorchers and the 100 Deadliest Days of Summer—and you need to make sure your colleagues are protected.

You also want to know about the latest in COVID-19 guidance, including advice for how to return to work and resume operations safely in light of changing recommendations.

Last March, you had to quickly adapt to new safety protocols. Now, you’re having to adapt again based on the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It can be difficult and confusing, but the good news is you’ve done it before, and you can certainly do it again.

And while the pandemic disrupted business as usual—an understatement, to say the least—COVID-19 is only one part of what you do. Our website data reflects that based on the other topics you have been searching for this month.

Drop us a line in the comments or via email if there’s something else you need help with. Our job is to make yours easier, and your feedback helps guide our work.
