National Safety Month
June is National Safety Month! During the month of June, the National Safety Council encourages communities to increase awareness of the leading safety and health risks and ultimately decrease the number of unintentional injuries and deaths.
This year’s theme is “Safety Starts With Me.” Encouraging individuals to take ownership of their surroundings, take caution in their own lives and to become safety leaders in their communities.
In addition to the theme, each week of the month carries a different safety theme that reflects high rates of injuries. This year those include:
Preventing Slips, Trips and Falls
So this June take a moment to educate yourself and encourage safe behaviors around leading causes of preventable injuries and deaths.
