Safe + Sound Week set for Aug. 15-21


Washington — OSHA, NIOSH and a coalition of safety organizations – including the National Safety Council – are teaming up for the sixth annual Safe + Sound Week, scheduled for Aug. 15-21.

The national initiative is intended to help promote awareness and understanding of workplace safety and health programs. More than 5,300 employers participated in last year’s event, according to OSHA.


“Successful safety and health programs can proactively identify and manage workplace hazards before they cause injury or illness, improving sustainability and the bottom line,” the agency says. “Participating in Safe + Sound Week can help get your program started, energize an existing one or provide a chance to recognize your safety successes.”

Registration is slated to open in July.
