MADISON – Wisconsin Safety Council – the state’s leading provider of safety training and products – is once again partnering with the National Safety Council to recognize June as National Safety Month. Throughout the month, Wisconsin Safety Council will offer public and private training programs, engage members in a social media campaign and educate the public on how to prioritize safety at home and in the workplace.
National Safety Month provides an opportunity for organizations, communities and individuals to join forces and focus on preventing injuries and promoting overall well-being.
“Our primary objective is to help individuals and organizations make safety a priority,” said Wisconsin Safety Council Executive Director Aaron Huebner. “National Safety Month gives us an opportunity to use education, training and increased awareness to highlight best safety practices.”
As part of the National Safety Month campaign, Wisconsin Safety Council will focus on a new topic each week, sharing valuable resources, tips and best practices through their website and social media platforms.
- Week 1: Emergency Preparedness
- Week 2: Slips, Trips and Falls
- Week 3: Heat-Related Illness
- Week 4: Hazard Recognition
Wisconsin Safety Council, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, is also encouraging organizations and individuals to get involved by organizing their own safety events, sharing safety messages on social media and engaging in safety discussions with friends, family and colleagues.
