SAFE AND SOUND CAMPAIGN
The National Demolition Association is pleased to support Safe + Sound Week, a nationwide event to raise awareness and understanding of the value of safety and health programs in workplaces. Particpation is year round. Safe + Sound Week took place from August 10-16, 2020 - 2021 dates are coming soon! We encourage members to sign up to participate in Safe + Sound Week and undertake activities that promote management leadership, worker participation, and a systematic approach to finding and fixing hazards. To sign up to receive updates, get activity ideas, access free planning and promotional tools, and to see who else is participating in Safe + Sound Week, visit www.osha.gov/safeandsoundweek.
Safe + Sound partners were key collaborators for communication and outreach over the course of the year. Partners communicated about Safe + Sound Week through multiple channels, including email/listservs, Facebook, Twitter, newsletters, and website announcements. Also, 80% of partners “strongly agreed” or “agreed” that their participation with Safe + Sound was a positive experience in 2020.
