OSHA Gears Up for Safe + Sound Week

July 26, 2019
Week-long event encourages employers to implement workplace safety initiatives.

Safe + Sound Week is back from Aug. 12-18. 2019.

The goal of OSHA's annual event is to encourage employers to implement workplace safety initiatives as well as highlight workers’ contributions to improving safety.

“Leadership commitment matters and demonstrates workplace safety is a priority,” said Loren Sweatt, acting assistant secretary of labor. “Safe + Sound Week reminds employers that safety and health programs help businesses save money, eliminate injuries, and most importantly save lives.”

OSHA supports participation from 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. 

More information about Safe + Sound Week can be found on OSHA's website.
