PRLog - Sep. 24, 2011 - The founders of EHSQ Elite have selected Phil La Duke as a featured blogger for the 20,000+ member group on LinkedIn. EHSQ Elite features a rotating roster of bloggers with each of the four posting once a quarter. La Duke, whose work is regularly featured in Fabricating and Metalworking, Facility Safety Management, and ISHN magazines is the author of two respected and popular blogs.  His personal blog, www.philladuke.wordpress.com is devoted to worker safety issues and the Rockford Greene International blog www.rockfordgreeneinternational.wordpress.com focuses on business optimization issues across the SQDCM of industry.  “I toyed with consolidating the two blogs into one, but so many people come to the two sites from different sources and perspectives that I decided that I would be better served continuing them both” says La Duke.  “It’s a lot of work, writing for five outlets—two weekly and three that are essentially monthly commitments. But many of the ideas I introduce in one of the blogs I rework and shape into articles for print” explains La Duke “I’d like to think that readers of my blog get a more intimate and visceral read than they do from reading my articles. By the time they see print, most of my blog posts have morphed into richer, tighter, and more textured pieces.”
Group co-founder, Pieter-Jan Blots, Process Safety Manager at Kemira (a Findland-based global chemicals company) and a Technical Committee Member at The Amsterdam Process Safety Seminar Series, explains the decision to feature La Duke’s blogs,  “We started about half a year ago this EHSQ Elite blog, and I selected Phil La Duke as one of the blog writers, as he does have a view on safety and he does make people rethink safety issues. He ensures that we don't become self-satisfied safety professionals, knowing everything better, but makes us aware of our weaknesses.” Blots defends La Duke’s provocative and sometimes controversial style  “This may hurt some weak souls, yet creates interesting discussions. These interesting discussions are exactly one of the goals of this group.”
La Duke is equally excited at being featured, “I couldn’t be more pleased with having my blogs promoted in this way.  It’s truly humbling to be one of only four bloggers for the group. Also, many of my views are controversial and I find that there is a much greater receptiveness to my views outside the U.S.”
