KIRTLAND AIR FORCE BASE, N.M.(AFNS) --

The Air Force will participate in Safe + Sound Week Aug. 12-18. Safe + Sound Week is a nationwide event designed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to highlight the value of safety and health programs in the workplace and to celebrate the institutions that implement them.

The Air Force Safety Center is asking Airmen to take part in OSHA’s “Take 3 in 30” challenge as part of the Safe + Sound event. The “Take 3 in 30” challenge is simple: take three actions in 30 days to advance workplace safety or health culture.  Some recommended actions include, but aren’t limited to:

- Make safety part of daily conversations with workers.

- Walk the jobsite to identify hazards.

- Conduct a short safety meeting.

- Request a no-cost, confidential OSHA consultation.

- Create a safety video.

- Establish goals and objectives for a safety and health program.

- Recognize workers who meet or exceed safety and health goals.

- Find or become a safety mentor.

- Display a flyer or poster about workplace safety.

In order to make taking part in these actions easier, AFSEC has posted the necessary resources on its Safe + Sound public webpage.

Get “coined” by OSHA and AFSEC: Participants are encouraged to list and share the three actions they take by posting them on a list in the workplace and on social media using the hashtags #AFSafeAndSound, #Take3in30 and #SafeAndSoundAtWork. Once participants have completed their three actions in 30 days, they should contact AFSEC at segt.afsc@us.af.mil and they will receive a return email message containing an image of an OSHA coin which can be shared on social media or printed and posted in their workplace or newsletter. Airmen who create safety articles or videos will get a bonus Air Force Safe + Sound virtual coin.

AFSEC will share Airmen participation on Occupational Safety SharePoint and AFSEC social media. Email AFSEC.
