EMWD Safety First Week

EMWD Safety First Week

Safety First Week – January 9 – 13, 2023

Thank you for your participation in EMWD’s Safety Stand Down on November 16, 2022. The feedback we received as a result, was invaluable in helping us improve and reaffirm the safety culture here at EMWD.

The New Year offers the perfect opportunity to clear the slate and make a fresh start. The Safety, Risk and Emergency Management team is doing just that by kicking off 2023 with an exciting new safety campaign from January 9-13, 2023, called “Safety First Week.”

Our goal is to answer many of the questions asked during the Safety Stand Down and/or provide resources as requested. During this week, there will be a wide range of activities, education, and resources available to reaffirm our commitment to EMWD’s safety culture, including banners, daily flyers, posters, and prizes.
