OSHA's Annual Safe + Sound Week Underway
Still, 5,000 workers are killed on the job each year—that represents 14 deaths per day. 3.6 million more suffer a serious job-related injury or illness. We can do better!
Safe + Sound WeekOSHA's annual Safe + Sound Week takes place from August 9–15, 2021. This nationwide event “…recognizes the successes of workplace health and safety programs and offers information and ideas on how to keep America's workers safe.”
More than 1,000 companies are already involved. Those that have agreed to be publicly recognized are represented on an interactive map of the country. You can access a variety of e-tools and a nice selection of publications (many in Spanish) to help with your workplace safety activities for the week.
Whether you’re developing a new safety initiative, shoring up an existing program, or just communicating with your colleagues, the time and effort can be well worth it to your business. In addition to protecting human life and health, these actions can:
- Reduce worker’s compensation premiums.
- Ensure compliance with regulations and help avoid fines and penalties.
- Improve working conditions.
- Enhance the company’s reputation as a safe place to work.
OSHA’s Top 10 Workplace Safety ViolationsEvery year, OSHA publicizes a list of the 10 most commonly cited workplace safety violations. OSHA's latest Top 10 list of the most commonly cited workplace health and safety violations.
Display this dynamic printable poster to help keep common safety hazards top-of-mind for your co-workers.
The list of the most commonly cited violations does not change much from year to year, but remains an informative tool that safety professionals can use to identify hazards at their own facilities. The OSHA Top 10 list doesn’t cover every important workplace hazard, but it does provide an overview of the most common and costly violations for American employers.
Ultimately, the three keys to staying safe and healthy in the workplace are training, teamwork, and personal responsibility.
