Safe and Sound Week

We’re continuing our dive into Outdoor Working Hazards by discussing something that affects every single outdoor worker, no matter their occupation or location: the weather.

It’s also the first ever Safe and Sound Week, a national OSHA-led effort to raise awareness and understanding of the value of proactive safety and health programs.

There’s still time to participate in this year’s Safe and Sound Week! Check out our video to learn a little more about the event, as well as tips on how to keep workers safe when severe weather strikes.

 

How to Participate

Need some help getting started? Here’s some advice:

  • Plan activities and events that include the core elements of a successful safety and health program: management leadership, worker participation, and finding and fixing hazards
  • Promote the events to your employees and the public
  • Get feedback and recognize your participation with a certificate from OSHA
