Safety is no accident
National Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week presents an opportunity to focus, reinforce and strengthen our commitment to health and safety. During NAOSH Week, employers and workers are encouraged to participate in activities that promote workplace safety through situational awareness, and injury prevention, including safety training, hazard identification and hazard assessments.
Safety this week and every week, focuses on employers, employees, partners, and the public and the importance of preventing injury and illness in the workplace, at home, and in the community. Together, we can create safer workplaces and communities.
