What is Safe + Sound Week?

OSHA has designated August 15-19, 2022 as Safe + Sound Week.  It’s held each August to recognize workplace safety and health programs and to create awareness for worker safety, and OSHA provides a wide variety of resources, social media tools and other information to help you celebrate.

The Safe + Sound effort is focused on encouraging workplaces to have a safety and health program.  It says that your program needs to have three main goals:  Worker Participation, Management Leadership and a process for Finding and Fixing Hazards.  OSHA provides a wide variety of resources on its Safe + Sound website for each one of these areas to help you reach this goal.  These tools are available all throughout the year.  The Safe + Sound Week is an opportunity to highlight the successes you have been able to accomplish, and at the very least, give you a way to promote safety to your company and to the public.

Below is a list of tools available both to help you bring awareness during Safe + Sound week, and to help you strengthen your program throughout the year.
