Hazards is the only independent, union-friendly magazine to win major international awards. A recurring theme in the magazine is that workplace unions are the best hope for better, safer work - and Hazards says it provides the information and resources to make the union job easier. Hazards looks behind the company safety hype, and gives union answers to workplace problems. Using its global network of union safety correspondent Hazards aims to provide readers with best information available anywhere.
Hazards is the winner of The Work Foundation Workworld Media Award 2007 and 2008 for online journalism. The judges said Hazards “is so good that it not only renders the material detailed and probing, but also lively and gutsy as well." In 2008, US business magazine EHS Today named Hazards editor Rory O’Neill one of the 50 most influential health and safety leaders of the last decade.
Hazards has jointly developed a Health and Safety NewsWire with LabourStart which gives news headlines on unions' website as an RSS feed.
