CSC supports the efforts of OSHA and other agencies and organizations that are promoting Safe + Sound Week to increase awareness of the need to safeguard employees from occupational hazards.

Next week, Safe + Sound Week is observed across the United States. The event is described by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) as a nationwide event to raise awareness and understanding of the value of safety and health programs that include management leadership, worker participation, and a systematic approach to finding and fixing hazards in workplaces. The theme for this yearís week of recognition is Show Your Commitment to Safety.

Occupational safety and health programs continue to be critically important and the numbers speak for themselves. Although the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that the rate of worker deaths and reported injuries in the United States has decreased by more than 60% in the past four decades since the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Act was passed, more than 4,500 workers are still killed on the job each year. Sadly, another 4.1 million suffer a serious job-related injury or illness according to BLS figures. †

ďIn promoting Safe + Sound Week, OSHA reminds us all that fatalities and serious job-related injuries or illnesses donít just hurt workers and their families, they can hurt businesses in a variety of ways,Ē said Zahid Iqbal, MPH, CIH and Technical Director at Clark Seif Clark (CSC). ďThere are many reasons to implement or reinvigorate safety and health programs. These programs help to prevent workplace injuries and illnesses; improve compliance with laws and regulations; reduce costs, including significant reductions in workersí compensation premiums; increase productivity and enhance overall business operations; enhance social responsibility goals; and engage workers.Ē

CSC supports the efforts of OSHA and other agencies and organizations that are promoting Safe + Sound Week to increase awareness of the need to safeguard employees from occupational hazards. Working diligently to achieve these goals are the industrial hygiene and environmental experts at CSC who offer testing and consulting services to identify and mitigate potential chemical and biological hazards in addition to employee training, respirator fit testing and other personal protective equipment services.†
