National Safety Month 2022 - Are You All In?

National Safety Month, It's National Safety Month Are You All in?

Safety is more than a word - it's a way of life. Show your commitment to safety by participating in the National Safety Councils Safety Month this June!  

The mission is safety and YOU can make a lasting difference!

According to the National Safety Council (NSC) statistics, a worker is injured on the job every seven seconds. What's worse? Emergencies can happen at any time - not just in the workplace. However, many of the injuries that happen on the job are preventable with timely and appropriate risk mitigation strategies. That's why the NSC decided to make workplace safety and risk awareness an annual conversation with National Safety Month.

The NSC declared June as National Safety Month in the US in 1996 to highlight the need for safety and provide resources to help people make it home to their loved ones. As a result of increased attention to workplace safety, workplace injuries are on the decline overall. Yet there's more to be done to drive those numbers even lower. 

You, too, can make a difference by raising awareness about important safety issues, motivating your workplace, and shining a light on common injuries that could be avoided. Join the National Safety Month movement, and let's work together to stop workplace injuries and deaths - so more workers can go home safely to their families.

What does National Safety Month do to increase safety?

The National Safety Month 2022 will kick off its 26th-anniversary awareness campaign focusing on essential safety topics like slip trips and falls, mental health, and injury prevention. Each week after that, National Safety Month will provide resources highlighting specific safety topics

One of the keys to promoting a safe work environment is ensuring that employees understand all of the risks, not just those specific to your industry. Workplace safety involves much more than chemical hazards and installing a good security system. Injuries on the job come in many forms, with the most commonly occurring as a result of slips and falls. Unsafe environments or individual impairment also increase the risks of injury:

  • Contact with equipment or objects
  • Incidents on the road or in parking lots
  • Forklift hazards
  • Pedestrian impacts
  • Fatigue, illness or stress-induced accidents

The different safety topics include information and resources about reducing the leading causes of injury and deaths, whether at work, on the road, or in homes and communities. The free National Safety Month resources to help your team to understand the risk of injury in your workplace. Work through the practical tools included in each set to establish a safe environment and encourage safe practices every day, even after National Safety Month 2022. Each week of the Safety Month plan highlights a different aspect of workplace safety:

  • Week 1: Musculoskeletal Disorders  -  It's essential to identify risks and take proactive safety measures to reduce hazard exposure, from ergonomic safety to chemical management and everything in between.
  • Week 2: Workplace Impairment -  The pandemic has challenged us in every aspect of life - even causing mental distress. Stress and fatigue are impairing and could result in injuries on the job. 
  • Week 3: Injury Prevention A safe work environment protects lives and provides a place where employees can feel emotionally and mentally safe.
  • Week 4: Slips, Trips, and Falls Safety is about continuous improvement and ensuring that safety signs and training messages stick, so workers don't slip.

Remember, awareness is the key to prevention! Talking about safety issues is a critical component of preventing injuries and unintentional deaths in the workplace and at home. Make it a goal to think of at least one motivating change and improve safety! Every month is safety month when your employees understand the risks and can make safe choices at work. Plus, your team's increased confidence and self-sufficiency lead to better morale and job satisfaction.
