Created by the National Security Council (NSC), this annual campaign observed each June, focuses on reducing the leading causes of injury and death in our homes, workplaces, and communities, as well as on the roads.
Each year, four relevant safety topics are selected and one is highlighted each week of the month. This year’s topics include emergency preparedness, wellness, falls, and driving. These tip sheets provide great information on each of the weekly focuses.
Week 1: Emergency Preparedness – Prepare for the Unexpected
Week 2: Wellness – Prioritize Your Wellness
Week 3: Falls – Prevent Slips, Trips and Falls
Week 4: Driving – Always Drive Safe
NSC encourages everyone to identify and implement at least one change that improves safety this June. Here are their simple suggestions related to each of the weekly topics. If you’re already doing these things, try to come up with something that’s new for you.
