OSHA To Kick Off Safe + Sound Week

Aug. 2, 2023
Annual event promotes workplace safety and health programs with this year’s program focusing on mental health and workplace stress.

The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) will join businesses nationwide to recognize the successes of workplace safety and health programs during Safe + Sound Week, Aug. 7-13, 2023.

The annual event involves thousands of worksites that will promote the benefits of safety and health programs that include management leadership, worker participation and a systematic approach to finding and fixing hazards. According to OSHA, businesses that incorporate safety and health programs can help prevent injuries and illnesses, reduce workers' compensation costs and improve productivity.

This year's program will focus on mental health and well-being and resources to help alleviate workplace stress and support mental health. 

Organizations of any size or in any industry looking for an opportunity to show their commitment to safety can sign up to participate in Safe + Sound Week. Last year, more than 3,300 businesses helped raise awareness about workers' safety and health.
