National Safety Month gets kicked off this week! The entire month of June will be dedicated to finding ways to be more safe. Sponsored by the National Safety Council, the theme for this year is ‘Safety; It Takes All of Us.”
The National Safety Council has determined the following themes for the coming weeks:
National Safety Month Schedule
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
While not all of these themes apply to ladder safety, this month the Ladder Safety Hub will be giving special attention to preventing slips, trips and falls as well as being aware of your surroundings.
In addition to June being National Safety Month, this week is also the National Safety Stand-Down, sponsored by OSHA. To participate, take some time from your day to have a fall prevention training. OSHA suggests having an interesting and informative safety training planned to educate employees on fall prevention.
