Making Sure Workers Come Home Safely
December 10, 2008

Safety at work means always coming home and during North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week, to be held May 3 -9, 2009 and the May 6, 2009 Occupational Safety and Health Professional Day, the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE), the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Canadian Society of Safety Engineering (CSSE) and more than 40 OSHA Alliance Program participants representing thousands of businesses worldwide will illustrate the value of workplace safety in helping workers return home from work to their families injury free. Alliance Program participants include organizations such as the American Heart Association, the Shipbuilders Council of America (SCA), American Red Cross, Dow Chemical, Abbott, the Brick Industry Association, the National Association of Home Builders and more.

To raise awareness about the prevention of workplace injuries and illnesses during NAOSH Week, ASSE, OSHA and CSSE will have a national NAOSH Week Kick-off in Washington, D.C., Monday May 4, with events at the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) and the U.S. Capitol as well as worldwide. In 2008, NAOSH Week expanded globally with events held in Canada, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and more. ASSE will also recognize the winners of the seventh annual ASSE kids’ “Safety-on-the-Job” poster contest for children aged 5-14 during the NAOSH Week award ceremony.

ASSE provides tools for members, partners, businesses, individuals and organizations to use in support of NAOSH Week events and activities. These tools include: an overview of NAOSH Week and OSHP Day; lists of past and current activities; 7th annual ASSE kids’ “Safety-on-the-Job” poster contest entry form and rules; brochures; draft proclamations and letters; statistics; past event photos; and more.
