National Safety Month 2013 - Safety starts with meNational Safety Council encourages Americans to become safety leaders this June.

Each June, NSC encourages organizations and communities to participate in National Safety Month – an annual observance to educate and encourage safe behaviors around leading causes of preventable injuries and deaths.  This year’s theme, “Safety Starts with Me,“was inspired by the pillar of Leadership and Employee Engagement from the Journey to Safety Excellence. Successful organizations engage everyone in safety and create a culture where people feel a personal responsibility not only for their own safety, but for that of their coworkers, family and friends. While leadership from the top is important, creating a culture where there is a sense of ownership of safety by all, makes everyone in the organization a safety leader.
