Health & Safety Podcast
Safety Services New Brunswick is pleased to announce the launch of our new “Health & Safety Podcast” in January 2023 hosted by Perley Brewer. The idea for a health & safety podcast came to life with the intent being a forum for both showcasing and educating New Brunswickers on workplace health & safety. The podcast will be available on our website, but also on other podcast platforms including Apple Podcast, Spotify, and Youtube.
Why a podcast? Today, individuals are turning more and more to different platforms to get their information. As New Brunswickers, we all know that we drive a lot, to get to and from work, to attend meetings, to meet with clients, etc. Podcasts allow our listeners to tune into a podcast and to make good use of this otherwise wasted time.
Our goal is to provide a podcast with both speakers and content that would be of interest to all health & safety practitioners and organizations in New Brunswick.
In essence, we are a health and safety podcast for the New Brunswick health and safety community.
As such, on a bi-weekly basis, we will release a new podcast featuring health and safety professionals, as well as other health and safety guests such as injured workers or family members of workers who have died on the job.
We will also provide to you, throughout our podcast, an email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) where you can reach us. We would appreciate your feedback, as well as your ideas for future podcast guests.
Over the next year we want to feature speakers from not only Safety Services, but also from WorkSafeNB, the NB Construction Safety Association, the NB Continuing Care Safety Association, from the public and private sectors, from municipalities, etc.
