During the past 20 years, functional safety equipment and services have become something of a niche specialization. Today, for instance, one of my publishers has asked me to begin producing content for a well-known safety testing and
certification organization. I will write a bi-monthly Web-based newsletter and produce a series of advertorials for the group. In addition, for the past several years, I've written a quarterly Web-based newsletter for a leader in industrial machine safety. These specialty publishing projects are done under the direction of a major publishing house in Chicago. It's rewarding to write about safety products and services, as this technology helps prevent accidents and save lives.
