Celebrate Safe + Sound Week August 10-16, 2020
Are you ready for Safe + Sound Week? The year-round campaign selects one week each year to draw special attention to the topic of workplace safety and health. This year, Safe + Sound Week will be celebrated August 10-16, 2020.
Safe + Sound Week is a nationwide event put on by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration that recognizes the successes of workplace health and safety programs and offers information and ideas on how to keep America’s workers safe.
Last year, more than 3,300 businesses helped to raise awareness about workers’ health and safety.
“Successful safety and health programs can proactively identify and manage workplace hazards before they cause injury or illness, improving sustainability and the bottom line,” reads OSHA’s Safe + Sound website. “Participating in Safe + Sound Week can help get your program started, energize an existing one, or provide a chance to recognize your safety successes.”
Safe + Sound website offers many suggestions on how to participate virtually or at a safe distance, including identifying and applauding safety-oriented employees on social media, asking workers to share their reasons they prioritize safety at work, or creating public displays about safety issues in the workplace.
Participation is as easy as signing up, identifying activities and events you might do around your workplace or community,
