June is National Safety Month
Observed annually by NSC, National Safety Month focuses on saving lives and preventing injuries, from the workplace to anyplace.
Now, more than ever, safety is crucial both inside and outside the workplace. That’s why the National Safety Council (NSC) recognizes National Safety Month® in June.
Workplace fatalities are unacceptable. According to Bureau of Labor Statistics data, total U.S. workplace fatalities reached 5,250 in 2018, the third consecutive year surpassing 5,000 deaths. Preventable work deaths continue an upward trend, increasing from 4,414 in 2017 to 4,493 in 2018.
For every worker lost, countless loved ones, co-workers and friends are affected. Please do your part to help reduce these statistics!
Show your commitment to safety, not just this month, but always by taking the NSC SafeAtWork Pledge to:
- Never compromise my own safety or the safety of my co-workers to get the job done
- Actively look for hazards, promptly report them and take appropriate action to warn others
- Be a good safety role model for my friends and family, even when off the job
TransForce’s top priority is for every single one of our drivers to make it home safely each and every day! As the NSC reminds us: You are someone’s reason for staying safe! Who’s your reason?
