Washington — A new 30-day challenge is aimed at helping employers bolster safety leadership.

Part of the annual Safe + Sound campaign promoted by OSHA, NIOSH and numerous safety organizations, the Take 3 in 30 challenge calls on managers to complete three actions in 30 days to advance workplace safety and health culture. Recommended actions include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Make safety part of daily conversations with workers.
  • Walk the jobsite to identify hazards.
  • Conduct a short safety meeting.
  • Request a no-cost, confidential OSHA consultation.
  • Create a safety video.
  • Establish goals and objectives for a safety and health program.
  • Recognize workers who meet or exceed safety and health goals.
  • Find or become a safety mentor.
  • Display a flyer or poster about workplace safety.

Participants are encouraged to list and share their actions on social media using the hashtags #Take3in30 and #SafeAndSoundAtWork. A virtual challenge coin is available online for managers who complete the challenge.


“Take 3 in 30” is among the quarterly events associated with the Safe + Sound campaign, which includes the third annual Safe + Sound Week, set for Aug. 12-18.
