ISSA is joining with thousands of people and businesses worldwide in raising awareness of the importance of being safe at work during the annual North American Occupational Safety and Health Week.

Lincolnwood, Il, USA, April 13, 2010-ISSA is joining with thousands of people and businesses worldwide, along with the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE), representing more than 32,000 occupational safety, health and environmental professional members, the Canadian Society of Safety Engineering (CSSE), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Alliance Program participants, in raising awareness of the importance of being safe at work during the annual North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week this May 2-8 and Occupational Safety and Health Professional (OSHP) Day May 5.

The NAOSH 2010 theme is “Mission NAOSH 2010: Safe Workplaces.” In addition to activities scheduled worldwide, NAOSH week events and educational programs are scheduled for Washington, D.C., May 2 and 3, along with a roadway safety event May 5 in Portland, OR, with ASSE members and state officials. The NAOSH kick-off events in D.C. will be held at the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), the U.S. Capitol, the Smithsonian, and the Washington National Zoo. The events will feature panel discussions on new industry workplace safety and health efforts as well as recognizing the winners of the 8th annual ASSE kids’ ‘safety-on-the-job’ international poster contest for children aged 5-14.

Attending the events will be ASSE members and their families, federal and state officials, and officials from ASSE, CSSE, and OSHA and OSHA’s Alliance Program participants.

“NAOSH week is another tool we use to educate people on the positive benefits of protecting people, property and the environment and sharing best practices among our members and their employees all in an effort to continue to enhance workplace safety worldwide,” ISSA Director of Environmental Services Bill Balek said today.

While millions of people go to work each day and leave there injury and illness free, due in part to the efforts of occupational safety, health and environmental professionals, still close to 6,000 people in the U.S. die each year from on-the-job injuries and 4.4 million more suffer illnesses. Throughout the year we continue to provide services and information that will reduce that number. NAOSH helps ISSA reach millions of people and tens of thousands of businesses on the importance and long-term benefits of workplace safety and also provide them with key resource information.
