Safety News Roundup: November in Review

Nov. 26, 2021
A look back at the latest developments and breaking news from November.

It’s hard to believe Thanksgiving has already come and went. (Where does the time go?)

In recognition of the holiday, we want to express our thanks and gratitude all of you for turning to and trusting EHS Today to help keep your workers safe.

For us, November passed in much of a blur.

We held our first in-person event since 2019. It was so great to meet some of you in person and to recognize this year’s America’s Safest Companies during the Safety Leadership Conference. We hope you will be able to join us (perhaps again) Oct. 20-22, 2022, in Cleveland.

We wrapped up our final print issue of the year. We’ve recapped some of the year’s major stories and previewed what’s to come in early 2022. Stay tuned for the next issue to land in your physical or digital mailbox!

We’re getting everything finalized and looking forward to meeting more of you next month for the virtual component of the Safety Leadership Conference on Dec. 7-8. The virtual event will feature the latest information on COVID-19 as well as ways to improve workplace safety for the fleet and construction industry, both of which are critical for the nation’s economic recovery.

In short, there’s no shortage of developments on our end, and we know there’s even more for practicing safety professionals. Without further ado, here are the most popular stories from EHS Today this month.
