A New Look

CROET teaches how to surf the web - GOSH 1999

Oh my, how the Internet has changed our lives. When CROET first designed CROETweb in 1996, most of us were just beginning to learn to search and find useful resources on the web. Can you believe that we even taught a class at the Oregon Governor’s Safety Conference on searching the web? Nowadays our kids and grandkids can’t believe our stories about how we had to actually go to the library to research a project. I still remember the first day I discovered the internet. I was putting together materials for a safety class and I was astounded that I could actually download materials from OSHA without requesting them by mail!

Anyway, we realize that the look and feel of CROETweb has been dated, particularly as much cooler, interactive resources have been developed. We also realize that the site can be difficult to navigate, especially for those newer to the world of health and safety. The bottom line is that the content of CROETweb will continue to be links to the best of health and safety resources elsewhere on the internet. Yet we wanted it to be nicer to look at and easier to find what you are looking for. You’ll also notice direct access to our blog, Oregon and the Workplace. We are still working out a few kinks, but visit our updated site today, and let us know what you think.
