Oregon OSHA Announces 15th Annual Safety Break

Employers across the state are invited to participate in Safety Break for Oregon on May 9. Three participating companies will win $100 in a drawing if they sign up online by May 4.

Oregon OSHA is inviting employers statewide to participate in the 15th annual Safety Break for Oregon; this year's event will take place Wednesday, May 9, and is intended to raise awareness and promote the value of keeping workers safe and healthy while on the job. Safety Break encourages employers to bolster workplace safety and health with training, award recognition gatherings, or other creative activities.

Oregon OSHA coordinates Safety Break, which is voluntary for employers. Businesses and other employers can decide what activities are most beneficial to their workforce.

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

Participating companies will be entered to win one of three $100 checks, to be used for a luncheon of their choice, when they sign up online by May 4. The winners will be selected in a random drawing; the Oregon SHARP Alliance is sponsoring the contest.

During the event, companies are encouraged to share their Safety Break activities on social media by tagging @OregonOSHA on Facebook and using #SafetyBreak2018 on Twitter and Instagram.
