Safe + Sound Week
OSHA’s Safe + Sound Week will be held August 15 – 21, 2022. The event is a nationwide event held each August that recognizes the successes of workplace health and safety programs and offers information and ideas on how to keep America’s workers safe. Your organization can join thousands of businesses who are recognizing their commitment to workplace safety and health. Organizations of all sizes and industries are welcome to participate.
Visit the Safe + Sound Week webpage to sign up to participate, and for ideas on planning and promoting your event.
Eyes on Safety
At the core of every effective safety and health program is a systematic process for finding and fixing workplace hazards, which includes conducting inspections to identify new or emerging hazards that could lead to injury or illness.
Looking for an activity to complete during Safe + Sound Week? Consider taking the Eyes on Safety challenge:
- Plan your safety walkaround.
- Conduct your safety walkaround.
- Prioritize the hazards you found.
Download your challenge coin and use the hashtags #EyesOnSafety and #SafeAndSoundAtWork on social media to show you participated in the challenge.
OSHA would also like to remind everyone about the Safety Pays Program. The Safety Pays Program raises awareness of how occupational injuries and illnesses can impact a company’s profitability. The program features multiple tools, including a tool that produces a report comparing workplace injury/illness rates of your business to your competitors.
