Effective health and safety programs not only protect workers, they also improve profitability and business competitiveness.

The seventh annual Safe + Sound Week takes place this year in Puerto Rico and across the nation from August 7th through the 13th. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), and a coalition of safety organizations supported by thousands of businesses recognize Safe + Sound Week and have committed to increasing awareness of the importance of health and safety programs.

OSHA reports:
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the rate of worker deaths and reported injuries in the United States has decreased by more than 60 percent in the past four decades since the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Act was passed. However, every year, more than 5,000 workers are killed on the job (a rate of 14 per day), and more than 3.6 million suffer a serious job-related injury or illness.

The agency also promotes the fact that safety and health programs help businesses:

  • Prevent workplace injuries and illnesses
  • Improve compliance with laws and regulations
  • Reduce costs, including significant reductions in workers’ compensation premiums
  • Engage workers
  • Enhance social responsibility goals
  • Increase productivity and enhance overall business operations

“Effective health and safety programs not only protect workers, they also improve profitability and business competitiveness,” said Harry Pena, President of Zimmetry Environmental. “In Puerto Rico and throughout the rest of the Caribbean, the industrial hygiene and environmental, health and safety experts at Zimmetry are dedicated to helping companies prevent accidents, injuries, illnesses and deaths on the job.
