Every few months, we review the analytics at the TAL Global website, looking for the most read posts on our website. Why some posts do better than others, we are not always sure.
What we do know is that all these posts are designed to teach, educate, and help ensure your safety, and the safety of those in your organization.
With that said, here are our four most read posts this year:
