Dec. 19, 2012 - PRLog -- Rockford Greene International’s Phil La Duke was recently named an “up-and-comer” and thought leader in worker safety by ISHN magazine. The magazine cited La Duke for his “safety and social networking,” and described him as an “aggressive blogger, (and) consultant.” La Duke was one of only 17 people to be so honored. In January, ISHN  also named La Duke to its Power 101, a list of professionals “who move and shake the safety world.”   At that time ISHN described La Duke as a “blogger who wants to knock safety upside the head to (force it to) quit feeling like a corporate orphan. Takes on all comers.” To date, La Duke is the only individual named to both lists. The international publication boasts a print circulation of over 79,000 subscribers and periodically recognizes individuals for their contributions to the world of worker safety.

“I’m really humbled that (ISHN editor-in-chief Dave Johnson) is a fan of my blogging. It can be tough to continue to crank out work into the blogosphere with little to no feedback. Typically feedback about my work consists of the lunatic ramblings of someone who has apparently not read my work or safety fanatics who think I am completely off base in all things. It can be exhausting,” explains La Duke. “While I don’t expect everyone to agree with me—in fact, I would be disappointed if everyone did—I do hope to make people think,” says La Duke.

La Duke is a prolific writer. Between his two blogs, guest posts to and, his monthly column for Fabricating and Metalworking magazine, and contributions to various safety magazines, La Duke averages over 10,000 words in print a month.

La Duke, who has also written for Facility Safety Management, ISHN, HR Pulse, and other magazines, recently contributed to the premier issue QSHE magazine,.  
The popularity of La Duke’s work is rapidly growing and La Duke estimates that the combined audience of print and digital readership exceeds 200,000 monthly.

“I enjoy speaking, writing, and blogging” says La Duke. “And for ISHN to recognize me for it is really important to me.”
