Safety and security continue to gain importance on a daily basis in the manufacturing automation industry and a new media outlet, Industrial Safety and Security Source ( launched this week to cover these very important vertical sectors.

The headlines are enough to strike fear in any manufacturer: “California man indicted for damaging offshore oil platform computer systems”; “Cyber Incident Blamed for Nuclear Power Plant Shutdown”, and “Oil companies targeted for cyber attacks”

The same can be said for safety disasters at Prudhoe Bay; Texas City; Anacortes, Wash., and Garner, NC, just to name a few. These incidents killed workers, seriously injured the environment and cost companies millions, if not billions, of dollars.

This vital industry segment has never received the full-scale media attention it truly deserves – until now. Industrial Safety and Security Source ( founded by industry veteran and award winning editor Gregory is an information provider that generates independent and unbiased safety and security information for manufacturers.

“With more systems operating in an open environment, the manufacturing environment continues to change at break neck speed,” said Founder and Editor, Gregory Hale. “That is why automation professionals need to remain at the forefront of the safety and security news, trends and issues.”

That is where Industrial Safety and Security Source ( comes in. This one-stop site caters to safety and security practitioners throughout the automation industry by offering original content in addition to aggregated stories from relevant news sources.
