OSHA’s Safe + Sound Week is a nationwide event designed to help raise awareness and understanding of the value of safety and health programs in the workplace. The effort includes management leadership, worker participation and a systematic approach to finding, fixing and reducing hazards in workplaces.
Workplace health and safety programs help employers and employees proactively identify and manage workplace hazards before they cause injury or illness, improving sustainability as well as the bottom line. If you’re look to energize your existing safety program, recognize recent safety wins, or want to get a program off the ground, Safe + Sound Week provides an opportunity to join other workplaces across the country to raise safety awareness and improve safety programs.
For more information on how to raise awareness about workplace health and safety, and to sign up to participate in this year’s Safe + Sound Week, visit OSHA’s Safe + Sound website.
