AAOHN Joins National Safety Council in Observing National Safety Month
AAOHN is proud to announce that it is partnering with the National Safety Council this year in observing National Safety Month, which takes place in June.
National Safety Month is more pertinent than ever as unintentional injuries have become the third leading cause of death in the U.S. for the first time in recorded history. To reverse this trend, we encourage everyone to celebrate National Safety Month and take steps to improve safety in our lives and the lives of those we care about.
Free resources – including a poster, tip sheets and other items – will be offered at nsc.org/nsm during each week of National Safety Month. Week one will focus on hazard recognition, week two on fall prevention, week three on fatigue and week four on impairment.
The National Safety Council has been leading National Safety Month since 1996. The effort focuses on reducing leading causes of injury and death at work, on the road, and in homes and communities.
