Oregon OSHA's 2019 Safety Break Set for May 8

Now in its 16th year, Safety Break encourages employers to bolster workplace safety and health with training, award recognition gatherings, or other creative activities.

Oregon OSHA is inviting employers across the state to participate in Safety Break for Oregon on May 8. The event is focused on raising awareness and promoting the value of keeping people safe and healthy while on the job. The agency describes it as a day to refresh training and knowledge about protecting workers.

Now in its 16th year, Safety Break encourages employers to bolster workplace safety and health with training, award recognition gatherings, or other creative activities. "This stand-down provides an opportunity for employers and their workers to take the time to remember the high value they should place on preventing injury and illness in the workplace," said Michael Wood, Oregon OSHA's administrator. "It's an important time to review past successes – and the reasons for those successes – while planning ahead with a renewed dedication to analyzing and eliminating hazards."

Companies that participate will be entered to win one of three $100 checks in a random drawing if they sign up online by May 3. The money can be used for a luncheon of their choice. The Oregon SHARP Alliance is sponsoring the contest.

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