OSHA Announces Inaugural 'Safe + Sound Week'
The event will help raise awareness of safety and health programs for stakeholders
OSHA has announced its inaugural “Safe + Sound Week,” a new effort that calls on organizations to raise awareness of the value and importance of workplace safety and health programs. “Safe + Sound Week,” will run from June 12-18, 2017.
Sponsors of the event include the NSC, AIHA, ASSE, and NIOSH. 85 trade associations, industry and professional groups are partnering with the initiative.
“Our nation has made great strides in raising awareness about the importance of workplace safety, yet more than four million workers suffer serious job-related injuries or illnesses annually. We can do better,” said U.S. Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta.
