June is National Safety Month. This month is dedicated to helping people discover how they can keep their environment, whether at work or at home, safe and free from danger.
Safety is an integral part of our everyday lives. How can we stay safe at work? How can we make our vehicles or homes safer? By asking these questions, we open up the dialogue about how we better keep both our loved ones and ourselves safe.
Staying Safe at Work
The National Safety Council has assigned each week in June with a different safety topic. Each topic touches on an area in the workplace where safety can be emphasized.
