OSHA announces inaugural Safe + Sound Week

OSHA has designated June 12-18 as Safe + Sound Week, a new nationwide effort that calls on organizations to raise awareness of the value and importance of workplace safety and health programs.

The event is sponsored by the National Safety Council, American Industrial Hygiene Association, American Society of Safety Engineers and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.

In addition, 85 trade associations, industry and professional groups are partnering with the Safe + Sound Week initiative.

“Our nation has made great strides in raising awareness about the importance of workplace safety, yet more than four million workers suffer serious job-related injuries or illnesses annually. We can do better,” said U.S. Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta.
