Connect with L&I on Twitter and YouTube

TUMWATER – The Department of Labor & Industries (L&I) has launched a Twitter site as its newest “social networking” feature. It also has consolidated its YouTube videos into one easy-to-use listing.

Links to both L&I’s Twitter and YouTube sites are available on the agency’s Web site, www.Lni.wa.gov.

L&I’s Twitter is a Web-based micro-blogging site with a range of information about such things as workers’ compensation, workplace safety and health, H1N1 flu and more. Some “tweets” on the site link to informative articles published in magazines and newspapers. Go to www.Lni.wa.gov/main/contactinfo/twitter/ for more information.

YouTube videos related to workplace safety and health are now listed at www.youtube.com/user/LaborandIndustries1. Topics cover such issues as heat stress, ergonomics, workplace-safety procedures, chainsaw safety and more. Also available on YouTube are winning student-made videos about workplace safety, and L&I’s “Work Safe. Home Safe” public service campaign.

L&I also shares information through 27 listservs that provide information important to specific groups of people. These listservs can be viewed at www.Lni.wa.gov/Main/Listservs/.
