Safe & Sound Week Is August 12-18
Use August to drive continuous improvement in safety and health
Safe + Sound Week is a nationwide event to celebrate the successes of businesses that have implemented safety and health programs in the workplace. Throughout the year, businesses show their commitment to safety by focusing on management leadership, worker participation, and a systematic approach to finding and fixing hazards in workplaces. Each August OSHA invites them to celebrate their safety successes and efforts to be safe at work (#SafeAndSoundAtWork).
Why should you care?
Safe workplaces benefit from increased efficiency and production. Successful safety and health programs provide these benefits by proactively identifying and managing workplace hazards before they cause injury or illness, improving sustainability and the bottom line. Participating in Safe + Sound Week can help get your program started or energize an existing one.
Organizations of any size or in any industry looking for an opportunity to celebrate their commitment to safety to workers, customers, the public, or supply chain partners should participate. Most programs are designed to allow for management and employee participation so that all within your facility are educated and empowered to find solutions to workplace safety and health challenges.
