June is National Safety Month, and we are celebrating alongside the National Safety Council and thousands of organizations. Celebrate with us!
Did you know that preventable injuries are the fourth leading cause of U.S. deaths? Join us in observing National Safety Month as we work together to highlight leading causes of preventable injury and death so people can live their fullest lives.
Each week focuses on a different topic:
Week 1: Emergency Preparedness
Week 2: Slips, Trips, & Falls
Week 3: Heat-related Illness
Week 4: Hazard Recognition
Let’s kick off the month with a focus on Emergency Preparedness.
An emergency can strike anytime, from a fire or natural disaster to a chemical spill or heart attack. Knowing what to do in an urgent, unexpected situation can mean the difference between life and death.
Resources for improving Emergency Preparedness at your organization:
An organization with a comprehensive, systematic emergency response plan can minimize risks and save lives before, during, and after any emergency.

“It’s really important to know how to do something,” said Carrie Bush, a first aid expert and program manager at the National Safety Council. “You never know when you’re going to need to use it. You’re more likely to save a life if you do something other than just calling 911.”
Join us next week, when we dive into the perennial OSHA Top 10 citation: slips, trips, and falls.
