Injuries are the leading cause of death for Americans ages 1 to 44, but there are many things people can do to stay safe and prevent injuries. During National Safety Month, spread the word about ways to reduce the risk of injuries and encourage communities, workplaces, families, and individuals to identify and report safety hazards.
MyHealthfinder provides toolkits for several National Health Observances, including National Safety Month. The toolkits provide resources for organizations like schools, health care providers, health departments, and more to raise awareness about critical public health issues, like safety and injury prevention.
We’ve made it easier for you to make a difference. This toolkit is full of ideas to help you take action today. For example:
- Share this information about how to stay safe at work.
- Tweet about National Safety Month.
- Host a community event where families can learn about the many ways to prevent injuries.
- Add this Web badge to your website, blog, or social networking profile.
By raising awareness about the importance of staying safe and preventing injuries, communities, organizations, and health professionals can work together to help people protect themselves and others from injuries.
