Oregon OSHA Plans to 'Shine a Light on Safety'

Employers across Oregon are encouraged to celebrate workplace safety and health with award programs, trainings, and other special events during the eighth-annual Safety Break for Oregon on May 12, 2010.

Oregon’s Occupational Safety and Health Division (Oregon OSHA) coordinates the one-day event, which is designed to raise awareness and promote the value of workplace safety and health in preventing injuries and illnesses. The voluntary event is designed to be flexible to meet an employer’s safety and health program needs.

“My hope is that businesses across Oregon will get involved with Safety Break to celebrate their safety and health achievements, but also to focus attention on problems that aren’t solved yet,” said Michael Wood, Oregon OSHA administrator. “It’s a great time to talk about hazards, host a training event, or promote the value of safety in the workplace.”

The theme for this year’s event, “Shine a Light on Safety,” encourages employees and management to work together on safety and health concerns. The result of this cooperation can lead to fewer injuries and reduced workers’ compensation costs for employers, noted Oregon OSHA. Companies planning to participate can sign up online.
