It’s a powerful combination — Canadian Occupational Safety (COS) magazine, the premier publication for health and safety professionals, has joined ranks with Canadian HR Reporter, the national journal of human resource management.

The move strengthens an already deep lineup of workplace-related publications from the Carswell Media Group, including Canadian HR Reporter, Canadian Employment Law Today, Canadian Labour Reporter, Canadian Payroll Reporter and Canadian Safety Reporter.

Canadian HR Reporter and COS have a rich history. We’ve been covering the workplace for a combined 75 years — 2012 marks the 25th anniversary of Canadian HR Reporter and the 50th anniversary of COS.
