Injuries are a leading cause of disability for people of all ages, and the leading cause of death for Americans ages 1 to 44. When people practice safe behaviors, they can help prevent injuries – and even death. That’s why we’re celebrating National Safety Month.
Make a difference: This month, spread the word about strategies for staying safe. Encourage communities, organizations, families, and individuals to get involved.
How can National Safety Month make a difference?
We can all use this month to raise awareness about important safety issues like:
- Slips and falls
- Workplace and employee safety
- Emergency preparedness
Together, we can share information about key steps people can take to protect themselves and their families.
How can I help spread the word?
We’ve made it easier for you to make a difference. This toolkit is full of ideas to help you take action today. For example:
- Add information about safety to your newsletter.
- Tweet about it.
- Host a community event where families can learn about the many ways to stay safe.
