As you likely know, LinkedIn is a great tool for connecting with your network – however, the social media platform also offers another feature that many don’t take full advantage of. LinkedIn Groups are a fantastic way to get involved with our industry online, and, lucky for us, there are a ton of groups dedicated to safety professionals.
