National Safe + Sound Week Campaign

Show Your Commitment to Safety

The Division of Occupational Safety and Health is a proud partner of federal OSHA's Safe + Sound Campaign. The campaign encourages every workplace to have a safety and health program, a proactive approach to identify and manage workplace hazards before they cause injury or illness. Employers in Washington are required to have a written accident prevention program.

Management leadership, worker participation and a systematic process for finding and fixing hazards are core elements of a successful safety and health program.

The campaign provides resources such as free live webinars, educational content and local events that can help support the adoption of safety and health programs. These opportunities all lead up to Safe + Sound Week, a nationwide event happening Aug. 13 – 19 where businesses around the country host events and activities to help initiate or energize safety and health programs. 

These resources are here to help you develop your own program and create a safer workplace culture.
