2022Workplace Safety

Written By Digital Content Editor Thomas Ahearn

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is asking employers to participate in Safe + Sound Week – a nationwide event held each August that recognizes the successes of workplace health and safety programs and offers information and ideas on how to keep America’s workers safe – from August 15 to 21, 2022.

All organizations looking for an opportunity to recognize their commitment to safety are welcome to participate in Safe + Sound Week. In 2021, more than 5,300 businesses helped to raise awareness about the health and safety of workers in the United States. Participating in Safe + Sound Week is as easy as 1-2-3:

  1. Sign Up to Participate: Let OSHA know you are participating this year by registering now.
  2. Plan and Promote Your Events: Identify activities and events to plan and promote for your workplace or community. Check out OSHA’s example activities, graphics, and other resources.
  3. Recognize Your Participation: After you have completed your events, you can download a certificate and virtual challenge coin to recognize your organization.

Successful safety and health programs can proactively identify and manage workplace hazards before they cause injury or illness, improving sustainability and the bottom line. Participating in Safe + Sound Week can help get programs started, energize existing ones, or provide a chance to recognize safety successes.

Employers are responsible for providing safe and healthful workplaces for their employees under the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Act of 1970. OSHA helps ensure these conditions for America’s working men and women by setting and enforcing standards and providing training, education, and assistance.
