National Safety Month

June is National Safety. Each week is dedicated to a specific safety theme with the overall goal of reducing the leading causes of unintentional injury and death at work.


1. Week 1 focuses on Musculoskeletal Disorders.


  • Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) are a leading cause of workplace injury

  • MSDs cost billions each year in workers’ compensation and lost productivity.

  • It’s important for organizations to gain the latest resources and practical tools to help prevent MSDs.


2. Week 2 focuses on Workplace Impairment.


  • Substance use on the job is the most well-known cause of workplace impairment.

  • Mental distress, stress and fatigue are also impairing.

  • Organizations should have access to resources to recognize the signs and address impairment in all its forms.


3. Week 3 focuses on Injury Prevention


  • In 2020, four million workplace injuries required medical attention in the U.S.

  • Organizations should learn about approaches to presenting injuries and deaths, including identifying hazards and assessing risks.


4. Week 4 focuses on Slips, Trips and Falls


  • Falls are the second-leading cause of unintentional injury-related death.

  • This week focuses on reducing slips, trips and falls, falls from heights and how technology can play a role in saving lives.
