Oregon OSHA is organizing an event on May 8 to raise awareness about the importance of healthy and safe environment at office. The agency has invited the statewide employers to take part in Oregon Safety Break. It described the event to be a day which has been planned to refresh knowledge and training about worker protection.
Running in its 16th year now, Safety Bank works toward encouraging employers to strengthen workplace safety and health by offering training, organizing aware recognition get-togethers, and other highly creative activities.
Oregon OSHA’s administrator Michael Wood said that the stand-down will give a chance to the statewide employers and their teams to take out some time to remember why they should focus on preventing illness and injury in the workplace.
Wood added that it is the right time now to look at the past successes and the steps that led to such successes. He said that all of them must plan for future with a renewed dedication to analyze and wipe out hazards from the workplaces.
The participating companies will compete to win 1 of 3 $100 checks drawn randomly, however, they must sign up online for the event by May 3. The winning amount can be used to a luncheon of their choice. The contest will be sponsored by the Oregon SHARP Alliance.
During the May 8 Safety Break event, the participating companies will be motivated to share their activities on social platforms by using hashtag #SafetyBreakDay on Twitter, and tagging @OregonOSHA on Facebook.
There are wide range of equipment and apparels available in the market to prevent industry related hazards. Flame retardant apparels are among the most commonly used and significant personal protective equipment, which is highly adopted in an array of industries. According to a report, in 2018, the sales of global flame retardant reached roughly 192 million square meter. The growing concerns related to the worker safety are expected to further increase the sales of the flame retardant apparels, which will also be boosted by the high demand from industries, mainly oil and gas, building and construction, chemical industry, to name a few.
