Made Safe, the manufacturing safety association for Manitoba is a proud supporter of several Manitoba North American Occupational Safety & Health (NAOSH) launch events.
The goal of NAOSH Week is to focus the attention of employers, employees, the general public and all partners in occupational safety and health on the importance of preventing injury and illness in the workplace, at home and in the community.
Taking place annually the first full week in May, NAOSH partners develop and implement activities throughout North America to promote NAOSH Week. The success of NAOSH Week is rooted in a community-based approach. Across the country, NAOSH Week events and activities are coordinated by local, provincial and/or regional committees, comprised primarily of volunteers, who share a focus and vision of safer workplaces and communities. NAOSH Week presents an excellent opportunity to focus, reinforce and strengthen commitment to occupational safety and health. Participation and involvement in NAOSH Week have been shown to:
- Improve attitudes towards safety
- Increase understanding of the importance of occupational safety and health
- Foster a safety-minded culture
- Increase cooperation
- Assist in team building and improve communication between employees, safety committees and safety professionals.
On May 7, 2018, approximately 200 guests are expected to attend the 2018 NAOSH kick off at The Fort Garry Hotel in Winnipeg. Attendees include representatives from CSSE, provincial departments and agencies accountable for workplace health and safety in Manitoba.
Made Safe representatives will be hosting, sponsoring and supporting a number of launch events throughout the province, including in Winnipeg, Steinbach, Morden and Selkirk. Please join us as we celebrate the importance of safety in the workplace.
