Shameless Self Promotion: Confined Space Up For International Award

Confined Space is in the running for LabourStart's Labour Website of the Year

All you have to do is click the link below and follow the easy and quick instructions. Hurry, voting closes on Sunday.

Why vote for Confined Space?

According to Hazards Editor, Rory O'Neill (who knows all):
This isn’t about getting a trophy on the mantelpiece (there isn’t one), it is about raising the profile of health and safety in the international labour movement, showing it is not a fringe concern and ensuring those in a position of influence can’t just dismiss us as a bunch of technocrats. On top of that, it’s about reinforcing the message to union leadership, local activists and grassroots workers that health and safety is the key organising issue. That and it is a matter of life and death.

Confined Space is one of the front runners at the moment, but needs a lot more votes if it is going to win. So please vote now and solicit everyone else you know to vote. If you have your own lists, please circulate a "vote now" notice to them. Voting closes on Sunday.
