Oregon OSHA coordinates this one-day event, designed to raise awareness and promote the value of workplace safety and health. The event is flexible to meet an employer’s needs and health and safety activities are determined by individual employers. As part of a genuine effort to address workplace hazards, this event provides an opportunity to remind both workers and their employers that it requires continued focus and diligence to create a workplace free from the hazards.
