Hello everyone,

Welcome back to Safety Corner, the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development Division of Worker's Compensation (DWD/WC) safety blog! I'm using this forum to share some of the safety news and information that I receive from my network of workplace safety professionals and pass along to employers across Wisconsin.

In this vein, I would like to share several thoughts on staying safe as we continue to navigate the COVID-19 "new normal" together:

As a "look ahead" preview, National Farm/Agriculture Safety Week is September 21-25, 2020 for our State's agriculture sector. More to follow in the next DWD Safety Blog.

Have a Safe Day, Always... !!
