Injuries are the leading cause of death for Americans ages 1 to 40, but there are many ways to stay safe and prevent injuries.
Take action during National Safety Month — encourage communities, workplaces, families, and individuals to identify and report safety hazards. You can help raise awareness about ways to reduce the risk of injuries.
With this and other National Health Observance toolkits offered on healthfinder.gov, we’ve made it easier for you to make a difference. The toolkits provide resources for organizations like schools, health care providers, health departments, and more to raise awareness about critical public health issues, like preventing injuries.
This toolkit is full of ideas to help you take action today. For example:
- Add information about safety to your newsletter.
- 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 spreading the word about ways to prevent injuries, communities, organizations, and health professionals can help people take steps to protect themselves and others.
