OSHA joins the National Safety Council and thousands of organizations across the country in recognizing June as National Safety Month. According to NSC, preventable deaths are at an all-time high in America. In fact, more than 130,000 people die needlessly every year – one every four minutes. As part of an effort to emphasize the importance of safety both on and off the job, NSC’s Keep Each Other Safe campaign emphasizes the importance of safety and health at work, on the roads, and in our homes and communities. Visit the National Safety Month website to take the SafeAtWork pledge and access downloadable materials, including a poster, tips sheets, and social media graphics. You can also register for a free webinar taking place on June 22.
