Promote Workplace Safety This Labor Day

More than 100 years ago, in June 1894, Labor Day was approved as an official holiday to celebrate the American trade and labor organizations who have contributed to the strength, prosperity and well-being of our country. As a result of the efforts of those involved in the labor movement, we have safe workplaces, work fair hours and receive adequate wages.

Whether you’re laboring or relaxing this Labor Day, take a moment to reflect on what this celebration means for American workers. Be sure to do your part to protect your employees’ work environment by following these important tips:

  • Make sure your facility meets The Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s most frequently cited standards.
  • Establish a business continuity plan that’s tailored to the specific needs of your industry and educate your employees on what to do during a disaster.
  • Review your safety guidelines each year to evaluate if any modifications need to be made.
