Workers Compensation Blog Marks Over 100,000 Views

The Workers' Compensation Blog has now logged over 100,000 views since its inception on July 27, 2007. It continues as an academic experiment to identify and disseminate information about developments and trends in workplace injury law, and hopefully encouraging a safer work environment for future generations. With almost 700 posts on line, and a readership that reaches 7 continents, the experiment has far exceeded my expectations.

As the United States approaches its Workers' Compensation Act centennial celebrations,  and history looks back upon the catalytic events, ie. the tragic Triangle Shirtwaist factory fire, that generated the model acts of 1911, it is hoped that experiments such as this blog will  inspiring a new focus on critical issues such as workplace safety, the environment  and international commerce that will embrace the system for the next 100 years.
