As readers of this series know, the topic of proactive risk management was covered both broadly and deeply before the ongoing Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic. That central topic focus has not slowed even one iota since the pandemic took hold.
Why, you may rightly ask? Simply put (and this writer is able to put it simply because he gave a university grad school lecture on the topic of proactive risk management this past week…) it is less expensive in terms of time, talent, and treasure to apply what one has learned over time about applicable risks and apply it to a constantly evolving business environment. Simple enough. For the details see the article entitled A Change in Business Plans. Resilience and Flexibility is Important in These Times.
Well, the world keeps turning, even amidst a global pandemic. And with it, sound proactive risk management planning. Towards that end, the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration is sponsoring Safe + Sound Week from August 10 through 16, 2020.
As described by OSHA:
Safe + Sound Week 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.
Safe + Sound Week consists of three elements for businesses:
- Easy enough Sign-up
- Plan and promote Safe + Sound Week events at the workplace and in the community. How to do that, one may ask?
- Recognize the participation with a certificate (suitable for framing) and a ‘challenge coin’ (no idea what that is…).Gather one’s post-participation awards.
So adopt a proactive risk management mindset, register for Safe + Sound Week, and… be safe. Do you want to know why? Because as business operators, ‘you’ want a positive “ROI”. Always.
