Safety Reconnect (formerly known as Safety Stand Down Week)
What: Safety Reconnect is a designated time for CEO’s, executives and senior managers to talk about safety issues directly with frontline supervisors and workers.
When: Safety Reconnect can take place any time of year. It can take place once, for a day or a week, or on a monthly basis. You should choose a time frame that works best for your organization. The most important thing is that you make time for safety – no matter when that might be.
