Safe + Sound: Happy Camper Doggy Day Camp & SleepOver

This month, from August 12-18, 2019, IBPSA held its first ever “Safe + Sound Week” inspired by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) event in the U.S. OSHA’s nationwide event is held to raise awareness and understanding of the value of workplace safety and health programs. In the spirit of the week, IBPSA premiered our international tweak of this event for all of our IBPSA Members.

As part of the week, IBPSA Members were encouraged to hold an awareness event with employees that amplified their safety and health programs, protocols, and initiatives. We offered a few suggestions and encouraged participating Members to submit photos of their event, along with descriptions to share with other IBPSA Members.

And Happy Camper Doggy Day Camp & SleepOver in St. Petersburg, Florida, delivered!

For their Safe + Sound Week their team worked together to brainstorm ways to make their facility even more safe. Check out some of their newly implemented safety initiatives:

  • An updated fire plan with new color coding. 
  • A sign in/out system for vendors.
  • Larger print labeling for our chemicals. 
  • A refresher on first aid. 

Well done, Happy Camper! Your dedication to safety for the pets and your staff is proudly recognized by IBPSA.
