Second annual Safe + Sound Week approaching

Will your company take part in Safe + Sound Week August 13-19?

The second annual Safe + Sound Week raises awareness about the value of safety and health programs. The theme is taken from the phrase, “Safe workplaces are sound businesses.” Throughout the week, companies are encouraged to hold events demonstrating their commitment to safety.

The Safe + Sound Week information on OSHA’s website offers multiple activity ideas for each of the three main elements of a successful safety and health program:

  • Management leadership
  • Worker participation
  • Finding and fixing hazards

All organizations, regardless of industry or size, may take part. Participating businesses can be listed on the map of events and receive a certificate and badge recognizing their efforts.
