June is National Safety Month

May 23, 2006 – June 2006 is National Safety Month, and Safety.BLR.com is commemorating the occasion with a comprehensive free resource center to help employers get their workplace safety message out to their employees. Training resources in the center will be available throughout June to help safety professionals plan and execute workplace safety events and activities during the month.

National Safety Month is designated and sponsored by the National Safety Council (NSC), a public service organization dedicated to protecting life and promoting health. To help with planning, NSC has assigned topics to each of the four full workweeks in June as follows:

  • June 5 – 9: Driving Safety
  • June 12 – 16: Workplace Safety
  • June 19 – 23: Emergency Preparedness
  • June 26 – 30: Home and Community

Safety.BLR.com’s Center for Workplace Safety Month will feature practical training meeting tools on each of the four topics designated by NSC. Go to the center each week and download these workplace safety training meetings, traditionally available only to our subscribers. They are available at no charge:

  • Defensive Driving Safety Presentation (PowerPoint)
  • Workplace Safety Under OSHA Trainer’s Outline
  • Emergency Chain of Command Tool Box Talk
  • Home Safety Meeting

BLR is also making the June edition of its popular Safety Works for Employees newsletter available as a free download to help improve safety in the workplace. The two-page newsletter contains how to tips and easy to digest training messages - and is meant to be photocopied and distributed to every employee in an organization.
