Safe + Sound Week, from Aug 13-19, 2018, is OSHA’s second annual event that calls on organizations of all sizes in a wide range of industries to raise awareness of the value and importance of workplace safety and health programs.
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 show their commitment to safety to workers, customers, the public, or supply chain partners should participate.
Participating in Safe + Sound Week can help organizations get their safety and health program started or energize an existing one.
While approaches vary, effective programs have three core elements:
- Management leadership that commits to establishing, maintaining and continually improving the program. Managers must also provide needed resources to support the program;
- Workers who help identify solutions for improvements. A workforce engaged in safety and health programs result in higher productivity, increased job satisfaction and strong worker retention, which combine to increase revenues and lower turnover and recruitment costs; and
- A systematic “find and fix” approach that calls upon employers and workers alike to examine their workplaces – proactively and routinely – to identify and address hazards before an injury or illness occurs.
After you’ve completed your events, you can download a certificate and web badge to recognize your organization and your workers.
