In this BA Collab Hour, learn about the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Safe + Sound program, including its history, the three core elements, and free resources available for breweries to use. Understand what OSHA consultation services are and how Brewers Association (BA) members can access them to help make their breweries safer. Representatives from Highland Brewing and Fox Run Vineyards share their experiences developing their health and safety program through the lens of the Safe + Sound core elements—management leadership, employee involvement, and finding and fixing hazards.
The Safe + Sound Campaign encourages employers to implement a health and safety program. The signature event is Safe + Sound Week, held each year during the first week of August. During this time employers can show their safety commitment through activities related to the three core elements. This year’s Safe + Sound Week is August 7-13. Employers can sign up to take the Safe + Sound Challenge to pledge to conduct a safety activity during that week by visiting www.osha.gov/safeandsound.
