Teaming Canadian Occupational Safety magazine with Canadian HR Reporter a winning combination

By Todd Humber

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.

Carswell, a Thomson Reuters business, announced the purchase of COS from Annex Publishing and Printing earlier this week.

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

Canadian HR Reporter and COS have been covering the workplace for a combined 75 years — 2012 marks the 25th anniversary for HR Reporter and the 50th anniversary for COS.

In addition to the print and digital editions, which are published six times per year, COS also has a dynamic daily online presence and it presents the prestigious annual Canada’s Safest Employers Awards, a program that recognizes companies doing an exemplary job in promoting the health and safety of their workers.

You can view the February/March digital edition of COS here and sign up for a free subscription.

We’re excited about this new addition. Canadian HR Reporter is committed to providing human resources professionals, health and safety professionals and employers in general with independent, timely and relevant news, information and best practices. Our growing team of professional journalists and editors has an unparalleled ability to cover workplace issues.

We will continue to strengthen our lineup of products to provide you, and your organization, with the information you need to thrive.
