OSHA "National Fall Prevention Stand-Down" Week; Ag, Farm Safety Week; COVID19 - Reopening Business Protocols

Hello everyone,

Welcome back to Safety Corner, the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development Division of Worker's Compensation (DWD/WC) safety blog! I'm using this forum to share some of the safety news and information that I receive from my network of workplace safety professionals and pass along to employers across Wisconsin.

Accordingly, I have several current thoughts on staying safe as we continue to navigate the current COVID-19 "new normal" together:

As a preview, October recognizes fire safety, emergency action plans and evacuation drills. October is also "Sudden Cardiac Awareness Month" – focusing on refreshing one's CPR and AED skills in saving a life. More to follow come October.

Have a Safe Day, Always!!
