Security News Roundup: February 2022 in Review

February may only have 28 days, but it was packed, at least for us.

It could have something to do with winter storms, the Winter Olympics, Super Bowl LVI and now the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Oh, and the fact that we’re approaching the second anniversary of the COVID-19 pandemic, which is still claiming the lives of more than 1,500 Americans a day.

It’s impossible to know what will happen next in the world, but you can count on SSE today to continue to provide the latest industry news and best practices on how to make the workplace safer.

While we collectively hold our breath and wait to hear what’s next, here’s a look at some of the most popular stories online.

We continue to see great interest in developments related to COVID-19. We see that you are also interested in more traditional topics such as chemical emergencies and hearing loss. We’re glad so many of you wanted to know how to share the love with your employees ahead of Valentine’s Day, which feels like an eternity. We’re also excited to see you researching what more you can do to improve workplace safety, as if you didn’t have enough on your plate, including learning more about wellbeing and visual literacy.

We hope you find something new and useful in these stories. And if you have any ideas of what you would like to see from SSE todaydrop them in the comments below.
