Holiday Gifts from NIOSH

Categories: Media, Observances, Sports and Entertainment

If you are lucky enough to get some time off over the holidays, you may find yourself looking for something to listen to, watch, or read.  Our gift to you this holiday season is a compilation of the songs, movies and books with workplace safety and health themes that we have collected through the NIOSH Science Blog.  These lists were initiated by NIOSH and have grown with additions from our readers.  To save you the trouble of scrolling through all of the comments, we have incorporated all of the suggestions into one comprehensive list for each medium.

Safety Signage

Last year in January we highlighted the top blogs of the previous year.  This year we are taking it one step further to include our top contributions from 2013 across all NIOSH social media channels. It may be news to you that NIOSH is active in some of these areas.  If you didn’t know NIOSH was on Facebook or had a Linkedin account, add “exploring NIOSH social media channels” to your list of New Year’s resolutions. 

Horrible Bosses: Workplace violence in the real world

Categories: Manufacturing, Media, Service Sector, Stress, Violence, Wholesale and Retail Trade, Women

Horrible bosses. If you’ve had one, hopefully they were not as bad as those portrayed by Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Spacey, and Colin Farrell in the newly released movie of the same name. While the plot and characters are exaggerated and the comic elements may not be to everyone’s taste, the movie highlights the very real issues of work stress and violence. Each week in the United States, an average of 33,000 workers are assaulted on the job and 14 are murdered. By and large, robbery-related factors account for the toll of homicide at work. The situations portrayed in the movie are not typical—worker-on-worker (or boss) violence accounts for only about 8% of workplace homicides. More than half of all workplace homicides occur in retail or service settings such as conveniences stores, taxicab services, and gas stations with the majority of these homicides occurring during a robbery.
