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.
