Alberta Oil Magazine and workplace safety

Alberta Oil Magazine recently published (to my surprise!) an op-ed I wrote re: health and safety stats.

In Alberta's injury statistics are inherently flawed: But it it willful blindness?, I argue:
Despite sunshine-and-lollipop press releases about injury trends, provincial government injury data is unreliable and often presented in a misleading manner. This poses a significant barrier to executives in the energy and oilfield services industries who want to make intelligent decisions about safety initiatives and risk reduction strategies.
So far reaction has been muted. Thoughts anyone?
