It’s National Safety Month - June 2014

 

The Department of Environmental Health & Safety is offering safety tips and information to the Campus Community in recognition of National Safety Month, presented by The National Safety Council. The NSC is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing safety information to keep people safe both at work and at home. 

 

The 2014 National Safety Month theme, "SAFETY: It takes all of us," was inspired by the idea of continuous risk reduction – a key pillar in the Journey to Safety Excellence.  A successful safety program depends on spotting hazards early, evaluating their risk and removing or controlling them before harm is done.

 

A little effort today has the potential to prevent tragedy tomorrow.  Please take the time to learn more about safety at home, at work, at play, and on the road. New tips will be featured each week.

 

National Safety Month weekly highlights include:

 

  • 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
  • Bonus week: Summer safety
