From August 15 to August 22 of 2022, OSHA is hosting Safe + Sound Week, which “is a nationwide event held each August that recognizes the successes of workplace health and safety programs and offers information and ideas on how to keep America’s workers safe.”  

As contractors take the time to focus on instilling safety practices into the workplace, Certified Environmentally Responsible Contractor (CERC) and Environmental Risk Professionals have created a webinar to help contractors identify and mitigate risks that may be related to their industry. CERC also offers a variety of other resources for contractors to utilize as they focus on prioritizing employee safety.
