Each June, the National Safety Council celebrates National Safety Month as a time to bring attention to key safety issues. This years 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.
Use this June to find creative ways to engage everyone in reducing risk in your workplaces. A little effort today has the potential to prevent tragedy tomorrow.
