“Work safely. Go home safely.” 
The National Framers Council develops and implements
best practices to help ensure framers leave the jobsite
each day in the same health as they arrived.

OSHA's National Safe+Sound Campaign

The NFC supported OSHA’s first Safe+Sound campaign in 2017 in a nationwide effort to raise awareness of the value of workplace safety and health programs as a campaign co-sponsor.

According to OSHA, more than 4 million workers suffer serious-job-related injuries or illnesses each year and companies spend $1 billion per week on worker’s compensation.

OSHA’s Safe+Sound Week: June 12-18, 2017

The NFC, as a  Safe+Sound Week partner, encouraged NFC members to participate in OSHA’s week-long event during which companies show their commitment to safety and participate in OSHA’s Safe+Sound Week on June 12-18, 2017.  

Participation in the Safe+Sound Week was a good way for framers to get started with a new subscription to FrameSAFE or get active subscribers more involved with their existing program. NFC members selected activities that focused on at least one, if not three of the core elements of a safety and health program: management leadership, worker participation and finding and fixing hazards, and received a certificate of recognition for their participation.
