National Safety Month Update & Promotions
National Safety Month Overview
Everyone faces hazards and potential dangers in their lives. Whether you face them while working at your job or in your personal life, there is always a risk of injury. HB NEXT understands that safety is a top priority which is why we are raising awareness for National Safety Month. June is the National Safety Council’s(NSC) National Safety Month. The goal of National Safety Month is to try and reduce injuries and fatalities caused by some of the less focused on hazards. Over the duration of June, the NSC will put special emphasis on one safety topic each week. The order for this year goes as follows:
Week 1: Mental Health
Week 2: Ergonomics
Week 3: Building a Safety Culture
Week 4: Driving
The NSC provides free public materials about each topic such as posters, articles, social media graphics, and more. They also provide additional 5 Minute Safety Talks for their members. The NSC raises money for the National Safety Council SAFER effort, which aims to address the safety needs of the Nation’s workforce now and in a post-pandemic environment. 100% of all donations from now to June 30 go to the SAFER effort and the NSC will match up to $25,000 worth of donations.

OSHA Safety Stand Down Postponed
OSHA also holds a Stand Down for Fall Prevention, as it is the cause of the most fatalities in construction, every year. This year, due to COVID-19, it has been postponed to an unknown date post-pandemic. In 2019, more than 47,000 employees participated in the Stand Down. They are expecting to beat that number this year as their community grows. To learn more about OSHA or the Stand Down to prevent falls in construction visit there article HERE.
