June Is National Safety Month

Once again the National Safety Council (NSC) is offering free materials to share in order to create a culture of safety in the workplace in observance of National Safety Month. Each week in June NSC provides materials focused on a different topic. This year’s topics include emergency preparedness, slips, trips and falls, heat related illness and hazard recognition.

Since its establishment by the National Safety Council in June 1996, organizations and individuals across the country have come together to join NSC in observance of National Safety Month, a dedication each June to bring extra attention to the safety issues faced from the workplace to anyplace. The latest available data reveals more than 4,400 preventable workplace deaths and 4.26 million injuries occurred in 2021. The NSC believes that it is as important as ever to raise public awareness of the leading safety and health risks in order to decrease the number of preventable injuries and deaths in the United States.
