North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week

May 4, 2016

It is marked by a 1997 agreement between Canada, the United States, and Mexico, dedicating the first week in May each year to focus on occupational health and safety.

The goal is to focus employers, employees, partners and the public on the importance of preventing injury and illness in the workplace, at home and in the community.

The success of NAOSH Week is rooted in a community–based approach. Across the country, NAOSH Week events and activities are coordinated by local, provincial and/or regional committees, comprised primarily of volunteers, who share a focus and vision of safer workplaces and communities. Partnerships with government, business, suppliers, CSSE Chapters, community health organizations and other safety groups provide the support, resources and network necessary to manage the NAOSH Week plans              

This year for NAOSH week we are going to encourage workers to actively participate in the daily toolbox meeting. Our theme for this NAOSH is safety leadership. Our mission is to help empower our workers into taking safety into their own hands and speaking up to help protect your safety and those around you. We have developed a series of interactive toolbox meetings to encourage workers to step up and actively participate in safety training, leadership and public speaking.   To end out week we will be holding a company-wide Safety Intervention & Communication Workshop with Bob Vaughan.
