IMPROVING FAMILY LIFE,
KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING!
Injuries are a leading cause of disability for people of all ages – and they are the leading cause of death for Americans ages 1 to 44. But many injuries can be prevented when people practice safe behaviors. Make a difference: Spread the word about strategies for reducing the risk of injuries. Encourage communities, workplaces, families, and individuals to identify and report safety hazards.
How can National Safety Month make a difference?
We can all use this month to raise awareness about important safety issues like:
Prescription drug abuse
Slips, trips, and falls
Being aware of your surroundings
Staying safe in the summer heat
Home Safety Video
Everyone can get involved in reducing the risk of injuries. Together, we can share information about steps people can take to protect themselves and others.
