Safe + Sound: Safety Isn't Just Luck
Region 2 VPP Sites:
Please pass along the information in the email chain below about this year's Safe + Sound Campaign to your contractors and industry colleagues.
"It takes more than the luck of the Irish to maintain a safe and healthy workplace. Safety and health programs focus on management leadership, worker participation, and a systematic approach to finding and fixing hazards to keep workers safe and save a little green. Take advantage of these resources to build your program and demonstrate its value:
· The American Society of Safety Engineers' on-demand webinar (free during March), Show Me the Money: Demonstrating the ROI (return on investment) in People, Projects, and Programs, shows you how to develop credible ROI arguments for your safety and health program. ( https://learn.asse.org/products/show-me-the-money-demonstrating-the-roi-in-people-projects-and-programs )
· The National Safety Council's Preparing the Business Case for Investment in Safety – a Guide for Safety Practitioners outlines strategies to communicate the value of workplace safety and build management support for safety investments. ( http://www.nsc.org/JSEWorkplaceDocuments/Journey-to-Safety-Excellence-Business-Case-Safety-Practitioners.pdf )
· OSHA's On-Site Consultation Program offers no-cost and confidential occupational safety and health services to small- and medium-sized businesses in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and several U.S. territories, with priority given to high-hazard worksites. On-Site Consultation services are separate from enforcement and do not result in penalties or citations. ( https://www.osha.gov/dcsp/smallbusiness/consult.html )
The Safe + Sound Campaign is organized by OSHA, the American Industrial Hygiene Association, the American Society of Safety Engineers, The Center for Construction Research and Training, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, the National Safety Council, and the Voluntary Protection Program Participants' Association.
