Did you know that loud noise can reduce work productivity and increase workplace accidents?
Created in 2016 by Brooke Mills, National Concussion Awareness Day was designed to raise awareness of the importance of recognizing a concussion, treating it appropriately and supporting the injured.
We all want to take safety measures to protect ourselves and those around us on the job site, but accidents can still happen. A perfect example of this is the number of traumatic brain injuries (TBI) on construction sites despite the use of hard hats. At Safety Solutions & Supply, we know this is a serious problem.
Safe and Sound Week is about taking action to prevent injuries and improving sustainability and efficiency in the workplace.
The United States Department of Labor promotes August 12-18 as Safe and Sound Week. This week is designed to encourage every workplace to incorporate a safety and health program and to celebrate businesses that already have a safety and health program in place. Those businesses can share their successes and encourage others to incorporate similar programs so all employees can be safe at work. Safety is our specialty here at Safety Solutions & Supply, and we want to make sure this week’s purpose is heard loud and clear.
Safety programs can focus on many things including management leadership, worker participation, and different ways to find and fix dangers around the workplace. Finding and preventing these hazards before anyone gets injured or becomes ill helps make your business a safe and sound place to work. It can also improve sustainability and efficiency in the workplace.
If you already have a safe and sound program in place, you have the opportunity to energize it and get everyone refocused by participating in Safe and Sound Week. If you don’t have a program in place, then this is the perfect opportunity for you to get one started.
It doesn’t matter how big or small your business may be, every organization should have a program in place. When you do, it shows everyone that you are committed to the safety of your employees and can be a positive influence on other companies around you as they see the success of your business because of your dedication to safety.
If you’re looking for ways to get involved, you can host an event just for your employees or you can even open it up to the public, post on social media, or send out flyers to make others aware.
There are many ways to be involved in Safe and Sound Week, and we hope you can take part. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us here at Safety Solutions & Supply. We are proud to offer different training services, so give us a call today at 866-537-2262 for more information.
