Get Ready for Safe + Sound Week
Is your company ready for Safe + Sound Week? From August 13th to August 19th, companies across the country will be celebrating their commitment to safety by hosting events and raising awareness about workplace safety. Lead by OSHA, Safe + Sound week is a national event that promotes the value of safety and health programs.
Your employees are working hard to complete their daily tasks while also staying safe and healthy. It’s a huge initiative that saves lives every single day. During Safe + Sound week, the Safety Pros encourage you to recognize your employees for their contributions to the health and safety of your workplace. This could mean giving extra, or more frequent recognition during the week, or introducing a brand new safety recognition program.
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.
The Safety Pros are experts in creating safety recognition programs that keep employees engaged with your safety message. Our programs are interactive and easy to use. Plus, they allow employees to choose their own rewards. Employees earn points for completing tasks that you control. Points can be earned for completing online safety quizzes, posting their ideas in discussion forums, suggesting safety improvements and other criteria. Points are then turned in for rewards that employees select themselves.
Here are some ways your company can participate in this year’s Safe + Sound Week:
- Plan to host additional training exercises, safety presentations, and other activities to boost safety program involvement.
- Get your employees involved by forming a committee to help plan and host the week’s events. They can also help to promote the activities and get the company excited to participate.
- Hang posters, promotional flyers, and pass out literature. You may even choose to decorate bulletin boards or the breakroom with safety slogans or special pictures reminding everyone of your company’s safety message.
- Recognize employees for their participation.
Safe + Sound week is a great opportunity to host your safety awards banquet and include special recognition to those who have met or exceeded safety goals. Reward employees with branded merchandise, custom apparel, awards and trophies, certificates, or incentive points through your safety program.
Safety Pros have the awards, plaques, and products you need to get ready for Safe + Sound week.
