Arizona Chapter National Safety Council Joins National Safety Council in Observing National Safety Month
Campaign this year will focus on hazard recognition, fall prevention, fatigue and impairment
nhoenix, AZ - Arizona Chapter National Safety Council, ACNSC, is proud to announce that it is partnering with the National Safety Council this year in observing National Safety Month, which takes place in June.
National Safety Month is more pertinent than ever as unintentional injuries have become the third leading cause of death in the U.S. for the first time in recorded history. To reverse this trend, we encourage everyone to celebrate National Safety Month and take steps to improve safety in our lives and the lives of those we care about.
Free resources - including a poster, tip sheets, and other items - will be offered at nsc.org/nsm during each week of National Safety Month. Week one will focus on hazard recognition, week two on fall prevention, week three on fatigue, and week four on impairment.
"We're excited to be a part of this year's campaign to promote safety in all areas for the public" says Rick Murray, President of ACNSC. "We are offering various advanced safety courses throughout the month of June to further recognize National Safety Month."
The National Safety Council has been leading National Safety Month since 1996. This effort focuses on reducing leading causes of injury and death at work, on the road, and in homes and communities.
