Cavalcade of Risk; introducing some blog finds

December 17th, 2008 by Julie Ferguson

Nancy Germond, blogger at Insurance Copywriter makes a fine debut as host of this week’s Cavalcade of Risk #67. It’s a good issue. Plus, we like Nancy – we’ve linked to some of her risk management columns at AllBusiness before. Note her recent timely column: Top Ten Ways to Avoid a Santa Suit.

While we tend to focus on workers comp and insurance in our blog recommendations, we read many peripheral blogs that we like so we thought we would bring a few new finds and favorites to your attention.
Through a good post on safety glasses, we’ve just discovered Assembly Blog, a web adjunct of Assembly magazine – that’s great, maybe we aren’t looking hard enough, but we haven’t discovered too many manufacturing themed blogs.
