OSHA's Safe + Sound week, August 13-19, helps to raise awareness and understanding of the value of safety and health programs that include management leadership, worker participation, and a systematic approach to finding and fixing hazards in workplaces.
Safe workplaces are sound businesses. Successful safety and health programs can proactively identify and manage 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.
WHO IS ENCOURAGED TO PARTICIPATE?
Organizations of any size or in any industry looking for an opportunity to show their commitment to safety to workers, customers, the public, or supply chain partners should participate.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
Participating in Safe + Sound Week is easy. You can host an event just for your workers or host a public event to engage your community. Examples of potential activities and tools to help you plan and promote your events are available on the OSHA website. After you've completed your events, you can download a certificate and web badge to recognize your organization and your workers.
Here are two safety talks that can be utilized within your company:
