Safe + Sound Campaign to Host Webinar on Workplace Safety and Health Programs

Published February 7, 2018

​OSHA’s Safe + Sound Campaign, which provides resources to help employers establish and maintain effective health and safety programs, will hold its first live webinar on Wednesday, Feb. 21, at 2 p.m. ET. The webinar is intended to help employers and employees create a strong culture of safety in the workplace. “Tools for a Successful Workplace Safety & Health Program​” will introduce attendees to two resources that are intended to help improve safety on jobsites: the Foundations for Safety Leadership program and the Safety Climate Assessment Tool. The FSL program is a free, OSHA 30-hour approved elective for construction foremen and other lead workers, and S-CAT is a website that allows contractors and employees to assess the safety climate at their worksites.

CPWR, a partner in the Safe + Sound Campaign, helped develop both tools and will host the webinar. Andrew Levinson, deputy director of the OSHA Directorate of Standards and Guidance, and Linda Goldenhar, director of evaluation and research at CPWR, are among the speakers scheduled to present.

AIHA is co-organizing OSHA's second annual Safe + Sound Week, a nationwide effort to raise awareness and understanding of the value of safety and health programs among workplaces across the U.S. Safe + Sound Week, which will be observed Aug. 13–19, 2018, is also being organized by VPPPA, ASSE, OSHA, NSC, NIOSH, and CPWR.
