Now in its 13th year, Safety Break for Oregon encourages employers to get creative with activities that will help their employees become safer and healthier – on an off the job.
Oregon OSHA coordinates the one-day event, which happens this year on Wednesday, May 11, to raise awareness and promote the importance of safety and health. Safety Break encourages employees and managers to work together to identify safety and health concerns. The event is voluntary and employers can determine what Safety Break activities will work best for their employees.
Companies that participate will be entered to win one of three $100 pizza luncheons when they sign up online by Wednesday, May 4. The prizes will be given to participating companies as part of a random drawing. The Oregon SHARP Alliance is sponsoring the contest.
For more information, ideas on how to host an event, or to download graphics, visit the Safety Break for Oregon website.
