OSHA's 'Safe and Sound Campaign' Urges Employers to Keep Workplaces Safe

The campaign calls on employers to review their safety and health programs that protect workers.

OSHA announced it recently launched its "Safe and Sound Campaign," which calls on employers to review their safety and health programs that protect workers, as well as reduce workplace injuries and deaths.

"Workplace safety and health incidents hurt workers and their families, and they cost businesses' capital better invested in growing their business and creating jobs," said Kim Stille, OSHA's regional administrator in Kansas City. "By identifying and controlling job-related hazards that can lead to injuries and illnesses, businesses can improve their safety and health programs, save money and improve competitiveness."

Twelve fatality inspections have been initiated by OSHA in Kansas, Missourim and Nebraska since October 2016, and serve as the motivation for the new campaign. A significant increase in fatalities associated with confined space entry and trenching and excavating have also been discovered.

"With just a phone call, companies can contact OSHA for assitance in achieving safety compliance. Working together with businesses, unions, and employees, we can reduce these sobering statistics and implement and sustain workplace safety and health programs that can help employees avoid preventable injuries and deaths," Stille said.
