Beyond our first responders there are millions of workers at risk within their hazardous occupations…

Kicking off at the International Safety Equipment Association’s annual meeting this week, this campaign will advocate for proper education, new innovations, and workplace leadership to instill a culture of safety that reduces risk for injury and death.
There’s no question that our country has made great progress in protecting workers in factories, food service, construction sites and other workplaces over the past few decades. However, despite this progress, 12 Americans still die on the job every day, and another 4 million workers suffer from on-the-job injuries each year. One death is too many. We need to put an end to workplace fatalities. To raise awareness about this problem, Mediaplanet created Worker Health and Safety as an educational publication that has united industry members, inspiring deeper conversation about safety culture.
The print component of “Worker Health and Safety” campaign is distributed as an exclusive publication at the ISEA Annual Meeting, Safety Leadership Conference, National Conference on Worker Safety and Health, World of Concrete, SeminarFest, Cutting Edge Safety, AIHce EXPO 2018, and ASSE Safety 2018 with a circulation of approximately 50,000 copies and an estimated readership of 150,000 safety leaders across the nation. The digital component is distributed nationally, through a vast social media strategy, and across a network of top news sites and partner outlets.

Miles Teller, actor, and star of the film “Only the Brave” has joined us in honoring our First Responders, who make up the largest at-risk workforce globally. The story told in this film is that of Brendan McDonough and the Granite Mountain Hotshots, who on this day faced an inferno near Yarnell, Arizona and 19 of 20 souls were lost. Within this publication we have dedicated a portion to our First Responders, who every day put their lives on the line for the well-being of public safety –this type of bravery often goes unrecognized and is important that we share the stories of the fallen.
