The New Safe Side was just published in Fabricating and Metalworking

Phil La Duke’s latest in  Fabricating & Metalworking  magazine THE DEATH OF THE “SAFETY GUY”

When it comes to making the workplace safer, there is as much room for people who acquired their safety pedigree through years of work experience and corporate training as there is for those who acquired theirs in a university.

For those of you who don’t know, I write a monthly column, the Safe Side for Fabricating and Metalworking magazine.  This month, I coincidentally (really) wrote about safety credentials. Meanwhile, Dave Collins, editor of the safety blog, http://www.Safetyrisk.au.com prefaced one of my more prickly works with a comment about the letters on people’s business cards.  So this work is NOT in response to that blog article, but in fact, preceded it.

It’s been almost a month since my post on Safetyrisk.au.com created a maelstrom of on line correspondence. Well, unbeknown to Dave Collins, this was in the hopper waiting to be printed. Why not give it a read and see if it sparks the same passion? At any rate I’d like to hear what you think.
