OHS Canada 25th Anniversary Best Editorial

12 Best Editorial

In celebration of our silver anniversary, readers of ohs canada and visitors to www.ohscanada.com recently took a walk down memory lane to select their very favourite cover from the last 25 years. The October/November 1998 image – an unnerving perspective on heights that makes a clear case for fall protection – was the ultimate winner.

But fall protection, yesterday as today, is hardly the only oh&s issue of concern. So ohs canada is again inviting website visitors to take a walk down memory lane with a selection of articles from the past that continue to have resonance today.

You may be interested in the Westray mine disaster, Bill C-45, WHMIS, confined spaces, work-related violence, oh&s committees, asbestos, young workers, motivation, critical incident stress, bullying or SARS. It’s all there. So grab a coffee, relax and enjoy. Go To View the results

To celebrate our silver anniversary, we asked both OHS Canada Magazine readers and www.ohscanada.com visitors to take a walk down memory lane. We chose 25 covers and asked participants to vote for their very favourite. There were plenty to consider: photographs and original art; high concept and simple depiction. The variety of images was only surpassed by the health and safety issues covered: repetitive work, protective equipment, Westray, fall protection, return to work, occupational disease, oh&s professional ethics, emergency preparedness, young worker safety, WHMIS, harassment and more.

In all, about 500 readers cast their votes. The final results and what voters had to say follows. Go To View the results
