National Safety Month

National Safety Month

June is National Safety Month with reminders that it's the seemingly little accidents at home that pose the greatest risks. According to the National Safety Council, falls are the top risk for people age 65 or older with an estimated 69 preventable deaths per day and poisoning (largely from prescription pain medications) are highest risk for people between the ages of 25 to 64 with 92 preventable deaths per day.

Each week in June there is a different safety risk them with educational events. Learn more at the National Safety Council website and if sharing on social media use #Safe4Life.
