Reorganization of Health and Safety Categories?[edit source]

I am interested in reorganizing the health and safety categories so that they better reflect existing technologies and use fewer general categories each with their own subcategories. This is what I have come up with so far. Steve.mccrosky 08:09, 8 July 2007 (PDT)

please put the Health and Safety page back[edit source]

this page seems to have disappeared and been replaced by a notice to change its name to healthcare. I prefer "health and safety". but would like to see the contents of this section - where are they? --Uriel 19:34, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

For now they are at Category: Healthcare, but I agree. Lack of consensus for change - I'll move it back with my bot. --Chriswaterguy 17:24, 11 December 2009 (UTC)
I've changed them back. I do agree there's plenty of recategorization to be done on the wiki though, so I hope that people continue to suggest and make changes. --Chriswaterguy 07:33, 13 December 2009 (UTC)
