Safe and Sound Week: June 12-18, 2017
"OSHA, the National Safety Council, the American Industrial Hygiene Association, the American Society of Safety Engineers, and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health have announced June 12-18 as Safe + Sound Week. The event is a nationwide effort to raise awareness of the value of workplace safety and health programs through the Safe + Sound Campaign. These programs can help employers and workers identify and manage workplace hazards before they cause injury or illness, improving the bottom line. Throughout this week, organizations of all sizes and any industry are encouraged to host events and activities that showcase the core elements of an effective safety and health program--management leadership, worker participation, and finding and fixing workplace hazards. Visit the Safe + Sound Week webpage to sign-up for email updates on the event. Additional resources to assist participants in planning and promoting Safe + Sound Week activities are under development. I hope you will share this information with your coworkers, colleagues, and contractors as part of our safety and health outreach efforts together."
