It’s Safe + Sound Week! This is a nationwide event sponsored by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) 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, businesses are encouraged to celebrate their safety successes and efforts to be #SafeAndSoundAtWork.
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.
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.
How to Participate?
Participating in Safe + Sound Week is easy. To get started, select the activities you would like to do at your workplace. You can host an event just for your workers or host a public event to engage your community. After you’ve completed your events, you can visit osha.gov/safeandsoundweek/ to download a certificate and web badge to recognize your organization and your workers.
