Have you planned your 2014 Safety Calendar? If you are working on what topics to cover with your employees this year be sure to take advantage of the excellent resources the National Safety Council provides during their annual National Safety Month. Every June the NSC focuses their attention on specific safety topics and key safety issues.
This year’s them is “Safety: It Takes All of Us.” It is based on the idea of continuous risk reduction. This theme is one of the key pillars in a successful safety program called Journey to Safety Excellence. By taking the time to reduce safety risks now, serious injuries can be prevented in the future.
The National Safety Council has assigned each week in June a specific topic:
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
Bonus week: Summer safety
The NSC also provides materials and promotional items to it’s members. For more information on National Safety Month please visit the NSC website.
