June. The kick-off to summer, the sunshine is ample, days are longer, kids are free from the bonds of education and family vacations abound. Is there a person that doesn’t really enjoy the summer time? The summer brings so many wonderful things, but also brings special alerts and circumstances that require particular attention. These are the reasons why The National Safety Council has also dubbed the month of June as National Safety Month. This is a ‘National Observance to education and influence behaviors around leading causes of preventable injuries and deaths.’
Each of the four weeks this June will have a different theme. First will be preventing slips, trips and falls. Second will be Employee Wellness. Third is Emergency Preparedness and finally the last week of the month is focused on ergonomics. In all of these areas, the successful businesses ensure all employees contribute to the culture with special care for their safety and the safety of others. Keeping everyone safe is a task everyone shares equally.
Stay tuned to our blog throughout the month for updates on how you can create a culture of safety and tips on employee wellness.
