AIHA and OSHA renewed their alliance agreement on May 21, 2013. The extended relationship between AIHA and OSHA will encourage training, education, outreach, and communication, and promote national dialogue on workplace safety and health. The agreement was originally signed on October 2, 2002.
Safe + Sound Week
The goal of Safe + Sound Week is to raise awareness and understanding about the value of safety and health programs among workplaces across the country.
During the week of June 12–18, organizations of all sizes and from any industry are asked to undertake activities to kick off a safety and health program or energize their existing programs.
AIHA is proud to be a co-sponsor of this vital initiative along with OSHA, the National Safety Council, the American Society of Safety Engineers, and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. Numerous trade, labor, and professional organizations are partnering with us to promote this opportunity to their members.
OSHA's Safe + Sound Week website is now updated with resources to help plan events and activities during the week and an interactive map of planned events from across the country. Planning and promotional tools such as event agendas, a planning checklist, graphics, and fliers and posters are also available. Customizable communications including press releases, articles, and emails will be available by May 1.
AIHA Volunteer Groups have developed the following one-page tip sheets for occupational health and safety professionals to use for at-a-glance information on specific hazards. Each tip sheet provides a brief description of the hazard, methods of control, and resources for additional information. These tips are supported by the OSHA Alliance.
Through our AIHA-OSHA National Alliance, and in coordination with ASA, ASSE, NSRP, and SCA, included below is a series of Safety Alerts.
