This year marks the 25th anniversary of National Safety Month. Created by the National Security Council (NSC), this annual campaign focuses on reducing the leading causes of preventable injuries and death.
Each year, four relevant safety topics are selected, and one is highlighted each week of the month. With fatal workplace injuries on the rise, including 5,333 in 2019, this year’s topics focus on creating safer workplaces. Check out the links below for more information and resources on each of the weekly topics.

West Bend ranked number one in the large company category for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Top Workplaces in Southeast Wisconsin! This is the tenth consecutive year we’ve placed in the top four. We also received a specialty award for values.
“The recognition we continue to receive as a top workplace is very meaningful,” said Kevin Steiner, West Bend president and CEO. “Our associates are our greatest asset and we have a responsibility to create and maintain a positive workplace. The fact that, year after year, our associates provide feedback that has earned us these top rankings is outstanding. Congratulations to more than 1,300 associates who work hard to make West Bend Mutual Insurance a special place.”
The evaluation for the Top Workplaces program is based on feedback provided by employees. Through a confidential survey administered by Energage LLC, employees are asked to provide feedback on issues related to workplace culture, including alignment, coaching, connection, engagement, leadership, performance, pay, benefits, and more.
