SAFE + SOUND WEEK August 9-15

Updated: Aug 5


PS Safety and Pathfinder Development group are proud to participate in Safe + Sound Week!

Obviously every week is Safe +Sound week in our lives but this OSHA organized week is a nationwide event held each August. This event recognizes the successes of workplace Health and Safety programs as well as it offers information, tips and tricks on how to keep America's (YOUR) workers safe.


Why should you participate? When a company has a successful safety and health programs it shows through the culture and injury/illness reporting. An effective HSE program can proactively identify as well as manage workplace hazards before it causes an injury or illness. Which in return improves employee longevity in the workforce, business sustainability and profitability - because the employees are staying busy and completing their jobs. Did you know part of the bidding process includes HSE compliance and TRIR Scores??

We believe that businesses, corporations and companies participating in Safe + Sound Week, brings positive attention to the affects of an efficient and engaging program. If you are just beginning this also, we can help get your program started with bountiful resources and networking opportunities. Big companies brag about their safety scores.....why don't you?


Who Participates? All organizations can participate and have a chance to be recognized for their commitment to safety. Last year, more than 3,400 businesses helped to raise awareness about workers' health and safety! Only .0012% of those were from Wyoming! That's crazy especially because we are so rich with Energy and Construction.


How we will Participate:

We will be participating and hosting quick learning sessions that apply towards building an energized and participatory Safety Culture. Safety is not once a year. Its every day and we love that. It doesn't have to be a battle to the top, especially if you partner with HSE Consultants/Trainers like us. We got you.

Why should you have a Safety + Health Program

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.


Serious job-related injuries or illnesses don't just hurt workers and their families, but can hurt business in a variety of ways. Implementing a safety and health program however, can improve small - and medium-sized businesses' safety and health performance, save money, and improve competitiveness.

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
