Ways To Get Involved For NAOSH Week

NAOSH Week provides a valuable opportunity to talk about safety in terms of organizational culture and engagement. It also focuses the attention of employers, employees, the general public, and all partners in occupational health and safety on the importance of preventing injury and illness in the workplace, at home and in the community. NAOSH Week is rooted in a community-based approach, so make sure you are doing your part.

There are events that have already been planned across the country, which can be found at this link: http://naosh.org/english/events.html. If you are looking for ideas on how to recognize NAOSH Week in your business or community, here are some of the suggestions from NAOSH:

  • Promote NAOSH Week through articles in your newsletter and social media channels. Don't forget to use the #NAOSHWeek hashtag.
  • Host a public symposium on health and safety issues in your community and work with a local business, service organization, or supplier to sponsor the event.
  • Invite school classes to tour your operations, highlighting basic safety features and the importance of working safely.
  • Display a NAOSH Week banner/flag in a prominent location in your community.
  • Launch a recognition program for safety suggestions that are put into use or enhance ongoing health and safety practices.
