June is National Safety Month 2017 as designated by The National Safety Council, but staying safe should always be top of mind!
Whether at work or play, your safety should be held in the highest regard, although that’s not always the case. At times, we can become complacent about safety issues, which makes June the perfect month to remind ourselves of its importance. It also becomes a great time to open discussions with family members on ways to improve the safety within our homes, and with employees/colleagues regarding workplace safety.
Just as cleaning up and keeping areas clear of obstacles that could cause trips or falls can have an immediate impact on our overall safety, things as simple as making sure you get enough sleep each night can tremendously decrease your chances of falling asleep at the wheel or becoming injured by machinery.
And while most safety incidents can be avoided by taking the right precautions and being mindful of overall safety protocols, there is always the chance of a true accident, making it even more important for us all to be vigilant and aware of what dangers could rear their ugly faces at any point.
The National Security Council has great resources to look at during national safety month 2017, including this easy-to-use Safety Checkup Tool and the infographic below!
