June is National Safety Month

In an effort to improve safety and reduce unintentional injuries and death, the National Safety Council is encouraging us all to focus on awareness and prevention this month. Their 2013 “Safety starts with me” campaign offers informational facts and steps we can take to reduce the risks in our own homes and our lives.

The theme for the 1st week of June is: Preventing Slips, Trips and Falls
