NSC: Plan Now to 'Make a Difference' During June's National Safety Month

The 2008 National Safety Month is still months away, but the National Safety Council is already encouraging businesses to plan now to make a difference. "Make a Difference" is in fact the theme of the council's 2008 National Safety Month observance--and, it says, a clarion call to action to employers and other organizations to help reverse a dramatic national increase in accidental injuries and deaths. Participation in the month-long series of events each June is just one way that companies and groups can support the NSC's efforts to prevent accidental injuries by encouraging safe and healthy behaviors, the council says.

This year's National Safety Month will feature a weekly focus on the leading causes of preventable deaths--motor vehicle collisions, unintentional poisonings from overdoses, and falls--as well as the lifesaving benefits of CPR/AED training for people in the workplace, at home, and in their communities. For planning purposes, the NSC offers this schedule of 2008 National Safety Month weekly topics:

  • Week 1: June 2-6 Emergency Preparedness
  • Week 2: June 9-13 Distracted Driving
  • Week 3: June 16-20 Poison Prevention
  • Week 4: June 23-27 Falls Prevention

National Safety Month posters and other materials will be available at no charge on the council's 2008 National Safety Month Planner's Page, http://www.nsc.org/nsm/.
