National Safety Month: Resources to Keep Workers Safe

Tune in to hear all about NSC's 25th anniversary of National Safety Month, resources for hearing conservation programs and a study to show that masking did actually help protect workers from COVID-19.

On this Safety Speak episode of the podcast, we will talk about National Safety Month! This month marks the 25th anniversary of National Safety Month—we’ll talk about the safety topics highlighted this year and resources available to safety professionals to keep workers safe.

After that, we will talk about OSHA’s latest news regarding a new program to decrease hearing loss. And finally, we have some evidence to back up the claims we’ve been hearing for over a year now. Masks are actually helping stop the spread of COVID-19. We’ll share the results of a poll conducted later in this episode.
