Mission North American Occupational Safety and Health Week (NAOSH) 2010: Safe Workplaces
As "Mission North American Occupational Safety and Health Week (NAOSH) 2010: Safe Workplaces" suggests, the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) and its 32,000 occupational safety, health and environmental (SH&E) professional members continue to lead pioneering efforts in work safety for businesses, workers and communities. North American Occupational Safety and Health Week (May 2-8, 2010) and Occupational Safety and Health Professional Day (May 5, 2010) help ASSE reach millions of people on the importance and long-term benefits of workplace safety and health.
NAOSH Week occurs every year during the first full week of May and is aimed at raising awareness about occupational safety, health and the environment and the SH&E profession. This is one tool the almost 100-year-old ASSE and its members use throughout the year to promote occupational safety aimed at preventing injuries and illnesses. Several organizations representing thousands of businesses have partnered with ASSE to support NAOSH Week, including U.S. federal agencies such as the Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
