The month of June is National Safety Month (NSM)! This month raises awareness for safety in and outside of the workplace. Throughout the month, Illinois workNet will be posting resources and other information related to National Safety Month, so be sure to keep up with Illinois workNet to stay safe and prevent injuries on and off the job.
The National Safety Council will also provide resources on several different safety topics for each week this month1:
· Week 1: Hazard Recognition
· Week 2: Slips, Trips, and Falls
· Week 3: Fatigue
· Week 4: Impairment
