National Safety Month is an annual observance to educate organizations and communities and encourage safe behaviors. Many injuries can be prevented when safety is a focus. Make a difference and help spread the word of the importance of this month with some helpful reminders below. The more we work together, the more we can improve the safety in our communities and surrounding areas. 

This year celebrates the 25th anniversary of National Safety Month. Each year, a new weekly topic is chosen for us all to practice good safety habits. For 2021’s topics and more information, please visit:

  • Week 1 – Prevent Incidents Before They Start: Identifying risks and taking proactive safety measures to reduce hazard exposure on important topics from ergonomics to chemical management is crucial to creating a safe workplace.
  • Week 2 – Address Ongoing COVID-19 Safety Concerns: As the pandemic continues, employers play an important role in expanding operations and returning remote workers to physical workspaces, building trust around vaccines, supporting mental health and so much more.
  • Week 3 – It’s Vital to Feel Safe on the Job: Being able to be one’s self at work without fear of retaliation is necessary for an inclusive safety culture. Leading organizations focus not only on physical safety, but psychological safety as well.
  • Week 4 – Advance Your Safety Journey: Safety is all about continuous improvement. Whether organizationally or individually, NSC can help provide guidance for your path forward.

It is important to practice safety at work but also during our everyday lives as well.
