Welcome to National Safety Month
In 1996, The National Safety Council designated June as National Safety Month. The goal was to increase awareness of the leading safety and health risks facing employees and decrease the risk of workplace injuries and deaths in the U.S. The NSC reports that in 2019, the United States saw the highest number of workplace deaths since 2007, making observing National Safety Month more important than ever. Workplace injuries and illnesses lower productivity and employee morale, and they also result in increased absences that could ultimately lead to lower profits. A workplace safety program can help to create a safe workplace and increase productivity and employee morale.
