NAOSH Week Begins May 5!
The 2019 North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week takes place May 5-11. NAOSH Week was first launched in 1997 through an agreement between Canada, the United States, and Mexico. The purpose of the week is to increase understanding of the benefits of investment in occupational safety and health, raise awareness of the role and contribution of safety and health professionals, and reduce workplace injuries and illness by encouraging new safety and health activities and interest in NAOSH Week.
NAOSH Week presents an opportunity to focus, reinforce and strengthen commitment to occupational safety and health. Participation and involvement in NAOSH Week has been shown to:
- Improve attitudes toward safety
- Increase understanding of the importance of occupational safety and health
- Foster a safety-minded culture
