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.
