North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH)
The North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week is an annual event where employers, workers, and all partners in occupational health and safety focus on preventing injury and illness in the workplace. It is marked by a 1997 agreement between Canada, the United States, and Mexico, dedicating the first week in May each year to focus on occupational health and safety.
NAOSH Week is a community-wide affirmation about the importance of safety and health and how everyone must make it a way of life and a priority. Safety should be integrated into everything we do – at home, at work and at play.
IZUNA is committed to being active in NAOSH Week through a number of fun initiatives. IZUNA’s campuses participate every year in NAOSH in an effort to foster a safety-minded culture, improve knowledge around health and safety resources both onsite and in the community, and generally improve attitudes towards safety.
