Participate in OSHA’s Safe + Sound Week and learn how to be "Best in Class!"
Have you ever thought about how much money companies spend on workers’ compensation every week? OSHA estimates that companies spend $1 billion per week on workers’ compensation. Just think of all the ways you could better invest in $1 billion, instead of paying for something that is avoidable, such as accidents and injuries.
To motivate businesses to create a culture committed to safety, OSHA is placing emphasis on the importance of a safety program by inviting all to show their commitment by participating in Safe + Sound Week, August 19th - 13th.
Safe + Sound is a nationwide event that aims to raise awareness and understanding of the value of safety and health programs. Workplaces can empower management leadership and worker participation to find a methodical approach to finding and correcting hazards in the workplace.
Businesses that have a safety campaign – such as a safety and health program - are sustaining, thriving, and taking care of their workers.
Safety and health programs allow workers to identify and control job-related hazards that can lead to injuries and illnesses. When workers are provided with the tools and training, motivated to take action when they see a safety hazard, and they understand the need to recognize hazards in the workplace, injuries and illnesses are significantly reduced.
To participate in Safe + Sound Week, simply select the activities you would like to do at your workplace. Get your employees excited by promoting the activities you’ve signed up for with your safety campaign. Read more about the importance of a safety campaign here.

Once your business has completed an event, you can download a certificate and web badge to recognize your organization and your workers.
