June is National Safety Month

June 4, 2019

Observed annually in June, National Safety Month focuses on reducing leading causes of injury and death at work, on the road and in our homes and communities. Thanks to the National Safety Council, we are able to provide downloadable resources highlighting a different safety topic for each week in June. Topics for 2019 are Hazard Recognition, Slips, Trips and Falls, Fatigue and Impairment.

Share the Safety Message in June: Use a little bit of creativity to engage workers, families and communities in safety this June. These ideas should help get you started:

  • Distribute the downloadable NSM materials (linked below)
  • Create newsletters or blog posts
  • Hold a safety trivia contest with weekly prizes
  • Make an activity out of identifying hazards where you work and live
  • Throw a safety fair, lunch 'n learn or celebratory luncheon
  • Encourage others to take the "Safe At Work" pledge at nsc.org/workpledge
  • Share posts on your social media channels using #NSM
  • Provide safety training
