HOLLAND, Mich. - Feb. 24, 2014 - PRLog -- February 17, 2014 - HOLLAND, Mich. -- (Holland, MI) ERM announced today that internationally recognized author, speaker, and worker safety thought leader, Phil La Duke, was included in Industrial Safety and Hygiene News (ISHN)
“ISHN is a top safety publication and to have them recognize my contributions to thought leadership in safety is really something I value.”

Mr. La Duke authors a weekly blog and guest blogs for, and ISHN’s blog; he also writes a monthly safety column for Fabricating and Metalworking. His work can also be seen in Facility Safety Management magazine and ISHN magazine. In April Mr. La Duke will have an article on fall protection appearing in the UK-based, Health & Safety International magazine.

“Obviously I enjoy writing about worker safety and organizational change,” says La Duke “but really the writing is just a way of promoting Environmental Resources Management (ERM), where I spend the bulk of my time working with ERM clients to significantly improve the safety of their workplaces. While we at ERM pride ourselves in being thought leaders in our respective practices our 150 offices in 40 countries around the world are devoted to being the number one sustainability consultancy. Beyond the work, though, ERM and its clients afford me the opportunity access to some of the top minds working in worker safety and environmental resource management anywhere in the world; it’s discussions with people like that---and of course my many LinkedIn contacts---that truly challenge me and shape the content of my blog and articles for print.”

La Duke’s brash, in-your-face style has brought him an international following and has drawn praise from the safety media. “I like to shake things up and get people (especially safety professionals) to really examine their beliefs. Whenever we challenge our beliefs we learn something, at least that’s been my experience; nobody really learns anything by reading things they already believe” says La Duke.
