Great Ways to Recognize National Safety Month in June

Awareness Campaigns

Awareness Campaigns

Join the National Safety Council (NSC) and organizations across the country by raising safety awareness during National Safety Month. Observed annually in June, National Safety Month focuses on reducing leading causes of injury and death at work, on the road and in our homes and communities.

Given the current state of the world, National Safety Month will look a little different than past years. Instead of focusing on a single topic each week, the National Safety Council will provide real-time, relevant resources on a variety of topics for keeping workers safe in our new normal.

The National Safety Council provides many resources so that any organization can have a successful Safety Month campaign. This year, the NSC will shine a spotlight on pressing topics, including, but not limited to:

  • Mental Health
  • Ergonomics
  • Building a Safety Culture
  • Driving

To access the free materials available (you don’t have to be an NSC member) just go to the NSC website and choose the link that says “Get Free Materials”. Once you enter some basic information you will notified by email when the materials are ready for you to access.

Campaign materials typically include:

  • Tip Sheets in both English & Spanish
  • Articles related to the safety focus
  • Graphics you can share on social media
  • and more!
Safety Awareness

Just like safety, the wellbeing of your employees is a priority. Wellness programs should be more than just fruit in the breakroom or a smoking cessation program. They should be integrated into your environmental, health and safety program. Besides being the right thing to do, promoting wellness can decrease health care costs and improve worker productivity.

The NSC Wellness Plus program is designed to not only focus on the absence of illness but the total wellbeing of employees. The program strives to encompass emotional, social and intellectual health as well as physical health, healthy behavior and supportive environments at work and home.

Every organization, regardless of industry, is encouraged to participate in National Safety Month. Ideas for workplace activities include:

  • Companies can conduct a safety meeting or toolbox talk on the weekly focus and encourage a discussion among team members.
  • Organizations can send out weekly emails with the related articles and tip sheets to allow employees to read as they have time throughout the week.
  • Articles and tip sheets can be printed out and provided to team members or posted on bulletin boards in common areas.
  • The president, owner or Safety Director can email a personal letter to all employees about what National Safety Month means for them with the message they want to convey to all employees.
  • Supervisors and managers can lead team safety activities such as conducting safety equipment inspections, developing rescue plans or discussing job specific hazards.
  • Organizational leadership can recognize individuals or teams for positive safety-related accomplishments.
  • Spread the word on social media using the provided graphics or awesome photos of team members – don’t forget to tag your posts with #NSM.
