Every June, the National Safety Council reminds us to observe National Safety Month and spread awareness about the importance of preventing public health risks that invade our homes, jobs, and communities. The NSC’s topics for 2019 are Hazard Recognition, Slips, Trips and Falls, Fatigue, and Impairment, and the organization asks individuals to do their part in preventing these incidents from occurring in the first place.
While you cannot control the negligent or reckless behavior of others, it is crucial to recognize that safety starts with you. Our team at Lauri J. Goldstein & Associates, PLLC offers these safety tips for anyone wondering how they can do their part:
- Emergency preparedness – Disaster can strike anytime, which is why it is vital you prepare for an escape plan if necessary. In case of an emergency, you must prepare for chaos and confusion, both of which create a breeding ground for injuries and accidents.
- Know your limits – If you are being overworked or pushed too far, remember to take adequate breaks as fatigue leads to human error.
- Stay focused – While not all accidents can be avoided, many are the consequence of inattentiveness. You can prevent injury by actively focusing on the task at hand, whether you are behind the wheel, shopping, or simply crossing the street.
