The ENG Safety Newsletter

Now in its 18th year!!

The ENG Safety Newsletter is 4 pages long, with occasional additional pages.
Pages 1 & 2 of a sample copy are displayed below.
It's a monthly publication that's incredibly inexpensive on a per-person basis, and includes a "no-stress" multiple choice "open-book"
test to keep questions and answers regarding safety in the minds of your staff. If you file the test portion,
it can be a very considerable asset with regard to documentation of safety education and training.
(We hope you never need to produce that....)

The ENG Safety Newsletter is a tool for technicians, photojournalists, editors, reporters, field producers
 and those throughout your newsroom that are the heart of your ENG Operation!
It's format is made to be copied and distributed (in ONE facility) to all of the people you feel will benefit by it. 

Price is $195.00/year.
(Given to 17 people  in your facility, it comes out to less than a buck a month for safety education, reinforcement, and documentation. )

Each newsletter has space for recipients name, department and date, so it can be handed in and filed as documentation of safety education.
This helps meet recommended OSHA safety standards and keeps safety in the workplace a repetitive group effort. 

The best safety programs are those which offer timely and repetitive information.

Safe work practices also promote a higher level of professionalism in the workplace.

    Cost of the newsletter? It's actually very inexpensive....especially when compared to loss-cost.

    If you have 17 people, such as photojournalists, technicians, and reporters, ALL of whom should read each issue,
    the cost is less than $1.00 per person per month to keep safety on their minds.

    Most stations have more people who should have safety reminders and refreshers!!


    The concept of the ENG Safety Newsletter allows for it to be copied as many times as needed within ONE station or company location.
    Large companies or station groups are welcomed to inquire about group rates for multi-location subscriptions.
