During the recently completed General Legislative Session of the Utah Legislature, the House of Representatives and the Senate passed SCR 9, Concurrent Resolution Designating a Week to Recognize Workplace Safety. Today, Governor Herbert hosted a ceremonial bill signing of SCR9 and also SCR2, Concurrent Resolution Recognizing Workers Compensation Fund for Workplace Safety.
The week of June 23-29, 2013, will be Workplace Safety Week in the State of Utah.
Working together to make a safe environment for all is our goal. The cost of an accident, whether financial, emotional, and/or physical, is an injury to all citizens of Utah. Workplace Safety Week is an added push to enhance safety in the workplace. Our slogan and goal is to have No Workplace Accidents June 23-29. A week with NO accidents–a dream come true!
Safety campaigns, media events, and outreach programs are being planned for Workplace Safety Week to inform the public and raise awareness of workplace safety. We all need to embrace the Culture of Safety in the State of Utah.
