Safe + Sound Week is a nationwide event organized by the US Department of Labor. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has already published a YouTube Webinar that explains the Safe + Sound campaign, tools & resources available, and how to participate. The goal is to raise awareness of the value of safety and health programs in the workplace. These include management leadership, staff participation, and a systematic approach to finding and fixing hazards in workplaces. There are even 23 International Participants which highlights the importance of workplace safety across the globe.
Who should participate
Organizations of any size or in any industry are encouraged to participate. Safety and health programs can proactively identify and manage hazards before they can cause a workplace injury or illness. OSHA has published a handy guide entitled Safe + Sound Week For Any Schedule.

Patient Safety in Healthcare
Specific to the Healthcare industry, Patient Safety is always a top priority. Patient Safety is concerned with how hospitals protect their patients from errors, injuries, accidents, and infections. The Safe + Sound campaign is promoting not only patient safety but employee safety.
