The Most Popular Stories of 2022

Dec. 29, 2022
A look at the year’s most popular news, as determined by you.

Whew! What a year.

We’re simultaneously breathing a sigh of relief that 2022 is almost gone and holding our breath for what unknowns await us in 2023.

It’s a familiar, though not quite comforting, feeling that we’ve had since the onset of pandemic. It seems you might be able to relate, judging by how many of you read stories about the COVID-19.

With any luck, the worst is now behind us—just in time for us to confront many of the ongoing challenges in workplace safety. There are other infectious diseases, persistently common violations, risk management concerns and pretty much everything OSHA.

We took a look at our website metrics and chose the most popular stories of 2022, as chosen by you.

Let’s hope 2023 is the year we finally tackle slips, trips and falls. Until then, EHS Today will be right there with you, offering suggestions for how to manage up, down and develop a world-class workplace safety program.

In the meantime, be safe, be well and get as much rest as you can. 2023 is sure to be full of surprises!
