Each June, the National Safety Council celebrates National Safety Month as a time to bring attention to key safety issues. As you plan your 2014 safety calendar, please join the Council and thousands of organizations across the country to reduce risk of the following safety issues:
Week 1: Prevent prescription drug abuse
Week 2: Stop slips, trips and falls
Week 3: Be aware of your surroundings
Week 4: Put an end to distracted driving
The 2014 National Safety Month theme, "Safety: It takes all of us," was inspired by the idea of continuous risk reduction. A successful safety program depends on spotting hazards early, evaluating their risk and removing or controlling them before harm is done. Use this June to find creative ways to engage everyone in reducing risk in your workplaces. A little effort today has the potential to prevent tragedy tomorrow.
