York University, along with other institutions and organizations across North America, is celebrating North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week 2021 from May 3 to 7.

NAOSH Week is an international initiative focused on highlighting the importance of health and safety in all aspects of our lives. Since 1997, NAOSH Week events and activities have been held in Canada, the United States and Mexico with the goal of focusing the attention of all individuals on injury and illness prevention in the workplace, at home and in the community.
