Many women leave engineering, blame the work culture
NPR
From the aerospace sector to Silicon Valley, engineering has a retention problem: Close to 40 percent of women with engineering degrees either leave the profession or never enter the field. Conventional wisdom says that women in engineering face obstacles such as the glass ceiling, a lack of self-confidence and a lack of mentors. But psychologists who delved deeper into the issue with a new study found that the biggest pushbacks female engineers receive come from the environments they work in.

EPA considering major changes to risk management program
The National Law Review
Spurred by several recent industrial incidents, both onshore and offshore, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has announced several potential revisions to its Clean Air Act Risk Management Program regulations. The RMP program Request for Information (2014 RMP RFI) contemplates a vast array of changes that could, on the one hand, increase the number of sources regulated, e.g., the addition of ammonium nitrate as a regulated substance; and on the other, increase the costs of those sources currently regulated, e.g., mandatory third-party audits, installation of automated detection and monitoring systems.

Balancing Care and Costs
[CorVel Corporation]    Share   
As the constant evolution of the healthcare industry continues to drive new solutions to address age-old challenges, the ultimate goals remain the same – reduce employers’ impact of claims and deliver improved care to injured workers to enhance their quality of life at work and at home.

A return to case management, the root of workers’ compensation, offers unparalleled – and often unrealized – results when adapted to claims management. Executing case management services at the right time during the claims process, combined with information and real-time technology to combat delays, can increase efficiency across the healthcare management process and lead to better outcomes for all parties involved.

Ruling: What's not allowed when accessing employees' social media sites
HR Morning
There are a lot of laws HR pros pay close attention to (FMLA, ADA, FLSA, etc.), but the Stored Communications Act typically isn't one of them. That should change. The act prohibits the unauthorized access of individuals' electronic communications and records that are intended to be private. If you're thinking this doesn't apply to you because you'd never go snooping around employees' email, you're wrong. It also applies to something a lot of employers are taking very seriously these days: the Facebook activity of employees and job candidates.
