This past May, the FAA hosted the annual Designated Agency Safety and Health Official (DASHO) Safety Awards Ceremony. For over 20 years, the first full week of May, every year has been recognized as the North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week, a continent-wide event spanning the countries of Canada, U.S.A., and Mexico. The goal during NAOSH week is to focus the attention toward employers, employees, partners and the public; placing emphasis on the importance of preventing injury and illness in the workplace, at home, and in the community.

May 6-8, 2019 the FAA celebrated "OSH Week", (three days of events in Washington D.C. headquarters) raising awareness of the people, purpose and passion required to make safety a habit in the workplace. The 3-day event culminated with a DASHO Safety Awards Ceremony.
