The North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week is a continent wide event spanning three countries Canada, USA and Mexico; that highlight to the public, government, and industry the importance of increasing understanding, raising awareness and reducing injuries and illness in the workplace, at home and in the community.
The goal of the North American Occupational Safety & Health (NAOSH) Week is to focus the attention of employers, employees, the general public and all partners in occupational safety and health on the importance of preventing injury and illness in the workplace, at home and in the community.
We are striving to:
- Increase understanding of the benefits of investment in occupational health and safety.
- Raise awareness of the role and contribution of safety and health professionals.
- Reduce workplace injuries and illness by encouraging new health and safety activities and interest in NAOSH Week.
The NAOSH Week Logo
The NAOSH Week logo - three hands forming an equilateral triangle - portrays the three participating nations - Canada, the United States and Mexico - and symbolizes joint venture, cooperation and the commitment to the common goals shared by all occupational health and safety partners. The three sides stand for partnership of the three countries in this joint occupational health and safety venture, as well as all tripartite partnerships between business, labour and governments. The connected hands illustrate assistance and cooperation on many levels - from interpersonal relationships in the workplace to international exchange.
