Celebrate and Participate in National Safety Month
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 there are many things people can do to stay safe and prevent injuries.
Make a difference: Spread the word about ways to reduce 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 painkiller abuse
Slips, trips, and falls
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.
