The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) will again join businesses and organizations nationwide to recognize the importance and successes of workplace safety and health programs during Safe + Sound Week, August 10-16, 2020.
The week-long event encourages employers to implement workplace safety initiatives and highlight workers’ contributions to improving safety. Businesses that proactively identify and manage workplace hazards can help prevent injuries and illnesses, reduce workers’ compensation costs, and improve productivity. Participating in Safe + Sound Week can help get your program started, energize an existing one, or provide a chance to recognize your safety successes.
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. Last year, more than 3,300 businesses helped to raise awareness about workers’ health and safety!
One such activity (or series of activities) for your firm to consider is the opportunity this presents to conduct new or refresher training, review/ update mandatory safety written programs or to simply get your safety program “up to speed”. Whether you have specific projects in-mind or are not even quite sure where to start, let CTI assist in cost-effectively achieving your safety goals.
