The official start of summer is in June, which also happens to be National Safety Month. Since summer is traditionally a time when most people are outdoors more often and for longer than at any other time of year, June is a great time to consider the health and safety concerns that accompany the season.

National Safety Month focuses on reducing the leading causes of injury and death at work, on the road, in the home, and in communities. This year, the month’s special focus areas are:
-Medication safety and prescription painkiller abuse
-Driving, biking, and working safely
-First aid and emergency preparedness
-Preventing slips, trips, and falls
