OSHA Violations, Citations and Inspections: What You’re Reading in November 2023

Nov. 29, 2023
A look at the month’s most poplar stories as determined by you.

What a busy month November has been! It’s flown by for me but also feels like a mish mash of annual events. First, there was the post-Halloween sugar rush, then Thanksgiving, then shopping deals and now the first major snowfall of the season.

Throw in some unexpected car issues that threatened Thanksgiving travel, a fridge that wouldn’t cool, an annual eye exam and a girls night out to see “Mean Girls” the musical, and that about sums my past few weeks.

I’m probably sharing too much, but sometimes it’s nice to remind yourself (and others), that you’re a human who has a whole different life outside of work. It’s impossible to compartmentalize these aspects of ourselves, especially when personal matters like reliable transportation and health and well-being come into play. Plus, despite everything going on in the world, it is really important for a person to socialize, relax and have fun.

As safety professionals, you know all too well how a moment can change from business as usual to life-or-death situations. It’s important to know how to respond to whatever life throws at you, but above all, that means being empathetic.

It’s the end of the month, and that means a roundup of EHS Today’s most popular stories. You’re interested in what OSHA’s up to, news about our Safety Leadership Conference and challenges for safety professionals.

But above all, I hope you see the humanity in these stories and are reminded of the very important work you do on a daily basis.

Until next time, take care.
