A few years before they became […]

Continuity planning is something every business must do to ensure that they can keep operating in the event of an emergency or disaster.

EHSDA Song of the Week: Beds Are Burning

We’ve spent a fair amount of time this week talking about environmental, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives, and one point that repeatedly comes up is that ESG involves more than just the “E.” With that in mind, our Song of the Week is a certified banger about indigenous land rights in Australia: “Beds Are Burning” […]

EHSDA Song of the Week: Accident Prone

Near-miss incidents may not result in damage or injury, but they should not be ignored. This week, EHS Daily Advisor wrote about the importance of near-miss reporting. To go along with that focus, the Song of the Week is “Accident Prone,” a low-key masterpiece from Bay Area punk act Jawbreaker. The fourth track on the […]

EHSDA Song of the Week: No Quarter

EHS Daily Advisor this week wrote about working in cold weather conditions and the unique hazards that winter can present.
