June is National Safety Month, which is a month-long safety awareness program from the National Safety Council (also known as NSC). National Safety Month has been an official national month since 1996. Learn more about ways to improve safety this month, and about the National Safety Council by reading further.
Ways to Observe National Safety Month
Take a walkthrough in your home, garage, place of work, and other places you frequent. Keep an eye out for safety hazards such as older, poorly maintained electrical outlets or devices, puddles/leaks, fire hazards, locks, alarm systems, and more.
Fix what can be fixed on your own, get professional assistance for bigger projects, and simply let someone know if you notice any safety hazards around their home or business so they can be aware and take measures to fix them.
If you haven’t done so already, it’s a great time to put together an emergency safety kit, develop and practice an escape plan with your household, and take classes to learn important skills such as CPR, defensive driving, and self-defense.
Since we’re still in an ever-evolving pandemic, stay safer from COVID-19 by keeping masked and socially distant in crowds, whether indoors or outdoors.
Being vigilant of potential hazards and fixing them before they turn into actual hazards are key in creating safety during this important month.

History of the National Safety Council
The National Safety Council, a non-profit organization, was founded on October 13, 1913, in Chicago, Illinois to eliminate preventable deaths in the workplace, on the road, and in homes and communities and promote health and safety in the United States of America.
While we’re used to seatbelts in cars, smoke-free restaurants, and lead-free paints used in homes, before the National Safety Council, these things were not the norm.
