National Safety Month is an annual observance founded by the National Safety Council to help keep each other safe — from the workplace to anyplace. During the month of June, the National Safety Council focuses on a different safety topic each week.

Week 1 focused on Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) — also knowns as ergonomic injuries — which are a leading cause of workplace injury and cost billions of dollars each year in workers’ compensation and lost productivity.

Week 2 focused on Workplace Impairment — we all know the dangers of substance use on the job, but did you know that mental distress, stress, and fatigue also cause impairment?

Week 3 focuses on Injury Prevention — in 2020 alone, more than four million workplace injuries required medical attention in the U.S.

Week 4 focuses on Slips, Trips, and Falls — with falls being a leading cause of unintentional injury-related death, this week focuses on reducing slips, trips, and falls.
