Reminder: Safe + Sound Week Is August 12-18

Is your organization participating in this year’s Safe + Sound Week? During the week of August 12th, you and your colleagues will have a chance join with workers and job creators across the country to recognize the successes of workplace safety and health programs and get information and ideas on how to keep employees safe. According to the DOL, more than 2,700 businesses helped raise awareness about workers’ health and safety through private and public events during the Safe + Sound campaign in 2018. Whether your event is private or public, this is a great opportunity for you and your colleagues to recognize those people within your organization who have shown a commitment to employee health, wellbeing and safety, as well as collaborate to find new ways to take your safety programs to the next level and continue to develop a strong safety culture within your organization.
