Oregon's 2017 Safety Break Set for May 10

Safety Break invites employers to bolster workplace safety and health with training, award recognition gatherings, or other creative activities. Coordinated by Oregon OSHA, it's a voluntary initiative.

With the 14th annual Safety Break for Oregon now scheduled for May 10, 2017, Oregon OSHA is encouraging employers in the state to take part and to promote safety and worker health at their workplaces. It is a day to "talk about why workplace safety and health matter in our lives [and] to put safety into action and to renew our commitment to preventing on-the-job injury, illness, and death," according to the agency.

Safety Break invites employers to bolster workplace safety and health with training, award recognition gatherings, or other creative activities. Coordinated by Oregon OSHA, it's a voluntary initiative.

"This stand-down provides an opportunity for employers and their workers to pause and remember the high value they should place on safety and health while on the job," said Michael Wood, Oregon OSHA's administrator. "It's an opportunity to celebrate past successes and to review the reasons behind those successes. It's also a time to reflect on current challenges and to look to the future with a renewed commitment to identifying and eliminating hazards."

Companies that participate will be entered to win one of three $100 checks to be used for a luncheon of their choice, if they sign up online by Friday, May 5. The prizes will be given to participating companies as part of a random drawing. The Oregon SHARP Alliance is sponsoring the contest.
