NAOSH – North American Occupational Safety and Health Week this year falls between May 3 and 9. This is a week when companies devote an entire week to safety activities and training to help raise awareness and promote good safety practices. Although the week serves as a good reinforcement that safety should be paramount in the workplace, employers need to make sure that good safety practices are developed from day one of hire and applied throughout the whole year and not just for NAOSH Week.
If your business hasn’t planned any NAOSH events, it is not too late to organize at least a few activities. Visit the NAOSH Week website for more information and plan to make this excellent event part of your health and safety program every May. Since we remembered those last month who died, were injured, or got an occupational disease on the job, let’s ensure that we start to act on the promise for better safety measures in the workplace.
