What is Safe + Sound Week? A nationwide event to raise awareness and understanding of the value of proactive safety and health programs that include management leadership, worker participation and a proactive approach to finding and fixing hazards.

Why participate? Safe workplaces are sound businesses. 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 your program started or energize an existing one.

Who is encouraged to participate? Organizations of any size or in any industry looking for an opportunity to show their commitment to safety to workers, customers, the public or supply chain partners should participate.

How to participate. Participating in Safe + Sound Week is easy. To get started, select the activities you would like to do at your workplace. Some organizations might want to host a public event. Examples of potential activities and tools to help you plan and promote your events are available. After you’ve completed your events, you can download a certificate and web badge to recognize your organization and your workers.
