OSHA has announced the date for the second annual safe and sound week, which will be held August 13-19, 2018. This national event is intended to promote the value of workplace health and safety programs.
Employers are encouraged to hold events and activities that highlight the elements of their health and safety program during this week. If you are in the midst of year end budget and initiative planning for next year, consider adding this to week to your plans. Developing fun interactive activities can engage employees and remind them of the established policies in a creative way. Even though it is a long way away, take advantage of the long lead time to develop daily activities to highlight the importance of your EHS program! You have plenty of time to prepare and think about the daily themes to cover during this week.
