   Imagine, you are getting in your car, what is one of the first things you do? If you’re like much of the population, you turn on the radio, Spotify, Pandora, iHeart Radio, or other music outlets. Now, that more of the world has smartphones, places like Spotify, Apple Music and iHeart radio, have beaten out radio. If you use one of these apps or a similar one, this is for you. 

   More and more people are expanding from just using these for music but go to find podcasts of topics they are interested in. There are over 750,000 shows out there, according to Podcasts Insights. So, if you are interested in occupational health and safety, or are in the that field, there are podcasts tailored to you.

   These podcasts are a great way to stay up to date on standards, learn new skills and different approaches, and relate to others in multiple different industries. In this post, I’m going to share with you 4 of the numerous safety podcasts that you could be listening to. Let’s get started.
