National Safety Month is held to celebrate and encourage awareness of the importance of safety. Organized by the National Safety Council (NSC) in 1996, this month marks the 27th year of promoting National Safety Month.
Every day this month is a chance to promote safety, not just at work but at home and in the community. Organizations can participate in a variety of ways, such as:
- Planning events to encourage employees to take safety home to their families and into the community.
- Designing contests involving safety reporting that needs to be addressed.
- Implementing drills for fires, tornados, and medical events.
- Holding short training sessions (first aid, changing a tire safely, defensive driving, and more!)
BWC provides many ways to help you promote safety within your company. For example, employees can take courses through our Learning Center. Training options currently include instructor-led virtual courses, webinars, and online e-Courses. Many options, including “Developing a Safety Culture” and “Safety for Non-Safety Professionals,” are provided at no cost. We also offer Safety Talks to promote safety in your workplace, as well as Written Safety Program Templates and Safety Publications to advance your overall safety efforts.
This year in June, start planning how you can promote safety at your company. If you need assistance with ideas, you can reach out to our safety consultants, industrial hygienists, or ergonomists. Their services are provided at no additional cost, simply go to our website to request a consultation.
Let’s make this year’s National Safety Month the best one yet!
