North American Occupational Health & Safety Week, May 1-6, 2023
Safety and Health Week, which takes place this year from May 1-6, is an ideal time for employers, employees, partners, and the public to focus on the importance of preventing injury and illness in the workplace, at home, and in the community.
Starting on May 1, you’re invited to join our virtual activities to celebrate Safety and Health Week. Sign up for free, live, online sessions kicking off with our National Launch.
