Dec 11, 2023

PARK RIDGE, IL — The American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) has shared practical workplace safety and health guidance and updates with thousands of safety professionals worldwide through its podcast series, which has surpassed 300,000 downloads over five years. New episodes of “ The Case for Safety Podcast” are available every other week and focus on a range of topics to keep industry professionals informed.

In its latest installment published today, the podcast discusses the impacts of winter weather on worker safety and health, and how keeping an eye on the outdoor temperature can help safety professionals and their employers have the right tools and procedures in place. The featured expert is Victor Rodriguez, operations meteorologist at Amazon, which is sponsoring the episode.

ASSP’s safety podcast series debuted in September 2018 and has shared 123 episodes.

“More than ever, ASSP supports the occupational safety and health community in finding ways to keep workers safe amidst new challenges,” said ASSP President Jim Thornton, CSP, CIH, FASSP, FAIHA. “Environments can change rapidly and our podcast continues to be a valuable resource in providing helpful insights.”

An upcoming episode will focus on the revised ANSI/ASSP A10.48 voluntary national consensus standard, which covers the latest safety practices and training recommendations for the construction, demolition, modification and maintenance of communication structures.

Recent podcasts have covered topics such as personal protective equipment for women, how to get safety improvement buy-in from your organization, tips for improving ergonomics, and how advancing workplace safety can increase productivity and benefit a company’s bottom line.
