Each June, the National Safety Council encourages organizations to educate and influence people about the leading causes of preventable injuries and deaths. Each week of National Safety Month carries a theme that brings attention to critical safety issues. 2012 weekly themes are:
- Week 1: Employee Wellness and PALA+ Challenge
- Week 2: Ergonomics
- Week 3: Preventing Slips, Trips and Falls
- Week 4: Driving Safety
The NSC has prepared a variety of materials and resources to help employers spread the word about a variety of safety topics.
