June Is National Safety Month

Safety should always be a priority, but in June this is especially true when National Safety Month is annually observed. During this month we place increased focus on reducing the leading causes of injury and death in the workplace and on the road.

Some of the leading causes for accidents in the workplace include:

  • Slips, trips and falls
  • Poor housekeeping
  • Taking shortcuts
  • Distractions

We can never completely eliminate accidents in the workplace, but through education and good habits, we can reduce accidents to an acceptable level, which is the ultimate goal of safety.
