AGC Oregon-Columbia Chapter and its employees recognized the importance of safety and health in the workplace during today’s statewide Safety Break for Oregon celebration.
To celebrate the annual Safety Break, AGC employees identified various potential safety hazards in an average workplace, discussed ways to remedy those hazards, and enjoyed time together with some sweet treats.
“Providing a safe and healthy workplace is a key value of our organization and the members we represent,” said Mike Salsgiver, AGC’s Executive Director. “Our members and employees are committed to working together to identify and correct hazards and develop safe work practices.”
The Department of Consumer and Business Services, Occupational Safety and Health Division (Oregon OSHA) coordinates Safety Break for Oregon, designed to raise awareness and promote the value of workplace safety and health in preventing injuries and illnesses. The event – which occurs on the second Wednesday in May – takes place in workplaces across Oregon.
When businesses involve employees, they can manage workplace safety and health just as they manage any other part of business. For more information on Safety Break for Oregon, please visit: http://www.orosha.org/subjects/safetybreak.html
