The Department of Labor announced it will hold Safe + Sound Week 2022 from Aug. 15-21. Safe + Sound Week provides an opportunity to highlight employer efforts to integrate and improve their safety and heath management systems. DOL notes that the week provides an opportunity to highlight these efforts and engage more with businesses that want to improve worker safety and health and discuss the importance of identifying and managing workplace hazards, before they cause injury or illness, to improve sustainability.

DOL encourages organizations of all sizes in any industry, including construction, looking for an opportunity to show their commitment to keeping the workplace safe for workers, customers, and their community to register here where more resources on how to participate in Safe + Sound Week are available.
