 |
August 15, 2022

Did you know more than 5,000 Americans, or 14 people per day, die every year from work-related incidents? This alarming statistic is according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Safe + Sound Week, an annual event organized by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), strives to help reduce the rate of worker deaths and injuries through effective organizational safety planning and education and connects organizations with resources to keep their workforce safe.

Health and safety programs should play a vital part in any business, especially for roles in industries where workers may be at a higher risk of injury or illness. Businesses in construction, manufacturing and healthcare should consider becoming involved in Safe + Sound Week to improve safety for their teams. Below are just a few ways to participate:

  • Enhance Your Programs: Check out helpful resources from OSHA including toolkits, courses and recommended best practices for implementing health and safety programs for your business.
  • Join a Safety Event: Identify virtual and in-person activities and events your team can participate in to further promote workplace safety by accessing the Safe + Sound week national event map.
  • Share Your Participation: Participate in this year’s events (or proactively plan activities for next year) and receive a certificate of recognition from OSHA for your organization’s efforts.

Safe + Sound Week provides a great opportunity to maintain and improve your safety programs. Implementing strong practices can keep workers safe and healthy which supports your bottom line.
