National Safety Month: Week 3’s Tools to Help Your Team Feel Safe on the Job

Toby Graham /

We’re celebrating the third week of National Safety Month. This week we’re focusing on how vital it is to feel safe on the job.

Being able to be one’s self at work without fear of retaliation is necessary for an inclusive safety culture. Leading organizations focus not only on physical safety, but psychological safety as well.

Week 3 Tools & Resources:

Safety professionals are quick to stress that meaningful change doesn’t happen overnight, and can only be accomplished by creating structural transformation centered on increasing acceptance and opportunities for minorities in the workforce.

Building a team that can talk about mistakes, near misses, or new ideas calls for a different kind of safety— where employees feel included, accepted, & safe.

What Does It Take to Create a Safety Culture That Sticks?

By targeting habits, any organization can expose unsafe behaviors, adopt new ones, and establish a true safety culture. Here’s how three companies did it.

The Not So Surprising Link Between Employee Complaints and OSHA Citations
