Safe + Sound Week ~ August 12th - 18th, 2019
Show Your Commitment to Safety
Safe + Sound Week is a nationwide event to celebrate the successes of businesses that have implemented safety and health programs in the workplace. Throughout the year, businesses show their commitment to safety by focusing on management leadership, worker participation, and a systematic approach to finding and fixing hazards in workplaces. Each August we invite them to celebrate their safety successes and efforts to be #SafeAndSoundAtWork.
2018 was a great year! We have almost 50,000 participants and last year’s Safe + Sound Week events reached 1.7 million workers! Check out our infographic to see more about how much we have accomplished together
Signal Administration has joined OSHA as an event partner for their 2019 Safe + Sound Week, across the nation. We encourage all Signal Mutual members to check out OSHA’s website at www.osha.gov/safeandsoundweek/ for more on this worthy cause.
