A Commitment to Workplace Safety: Read the Statement from Donald Lowe
Princeton University has a longstanding commitment to workplace safety. Read a statement from Assistant Vice President for Facilities Operations Donald Lowe about Safe + Sound Week 2018.

You've Been Caught... Working Safely!
Look for EHS representatives around campus this week as we hand out “You’ve Been Caught” cards to employees demonstrating good workplace safety practices. If you're "caught," you win a prize!
Can You Spot the Hazard?
The human ability to solve problems is truly amazing. So is our ability to create problems, as illustrated in our Spot The Hazard game on social media. All week, Princeton EHS will be featuring photos of unsafe practices on Twitter and Facebook . (Note: none of these were taken at Princeton!) Be sure to follow along and see if you can #SpotTheHazard during #SafeandSound2018!

As you look at the photos, ask yourself—what were they thinking?

Seriously... what was the motivation or assumption behind the unsafe practice? Why is it incorrect? How can managers and employees ensure these type of decisions or actions do not occur?
What is Safe + Sound Week?

Safe + Sound Week is an initiative of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The nationwide event raises awareness and understanding of the value of safety and health programs in the workplace. The focus of the week is on three core principles.
Find and Fix Hazards
At the core of every effective safety and health program is a systematic process for identifying and controlling (i.e., finding and fixing) workplace hazards.
Management Leadership
Management leadership means there is a commitment from the top to implementing a program and using it to drive continuous improvement in safety and health.
Worker Participation
Effective safety and health programs tap into workers' collective experience, knowledge, and insight in order to find solutions to workplace safety and health challenges.
