Cavalcade of Risk; introducing some blog finds

Nancy Germond, blogger at Insurance Copywriter makes a fine debut as host of this week's Cavalcade of Risk #67. It's a good issue. Plus, we like Nancy - we've linked to some of her risk management columns at AllBusiness before. Note her recent timely column: Top Ten Ways to Avoid a Santa Suit.

Other blog reads
While we tend to focus on workers comp and insurance in our blog recommendations, we read many peripheral blogs that we like so we thought we would bring a few new finds and favorites to your attention.

Through a good post on safety glasses, we've just discovered Assembly Blog, a web adjunct of Assembly magazine - that's great, maybe we aren't looking hard enough, but we haven't discovered too many manufacturing themed blogs.

We've recently added Corporate Wellness Insights to our sidebar. Of recent note: Three Wellness Issues to Watch in 2009

Thoughts from Training Time is a substantive blog that we like to read now and again. As might be expected, the general theme is on training, but posts run the gamut on a variety of human resource and productivity topics.

Wally Bock's Three Star Leadership Blog is a great filter for some of the best weekly business reading. Wally usually begins each week with a roundup of good posts he culls from the business press and often features a midweek roundup from business blogs.

We wish there weren't a need for this blog, but unfortunately there is since homicide is one of the leading causes of death for women in the workplace. Domestic Violence and the Workplace is written by Kim Wells, Executive Director of the Corporate Alliance to End Partner Violence. It's an important issue, and Kim highlights some of the best practice initiatives by some of the nation's largest employers. Also on the topic, see last month's article in Fortune: Domestic violence: Your coworker's dark secret
