Next Week Is Safe + Sound Week

​Posted August 8, 2018

Safe + Sound Week, a series of events intended to raise awareness of occupational safety and health, will be held across the United States next week, Aug. 13–19. Safe + Sound Week focuses on three topics that OSHA has identified as core elements of an occupational health and safety program: commitment to health and safety from the highest levels of management; the engagement of workers in implementing, evaluating, and improving health and safety; and finding and fixing hazards.

In June, OSHA held a webinar as part of the agency’s promotional campaign for Safe + Sound Week that discussed how to launch or invigorate safety and health programs in workplaces. The recorded webinar is available on YouTube.

AIHA is an organizing partner in Safe + Sound Week. Learn more about the nationwide event by watching “All About #SafeAndSound2018,” a video created by AIHA to help promote the week.
