National Safety Month
Injuries are the leading cause of death for Americans ages 1 to 40, but there are many things people can do to stay safe and prevent injuries.
We can all use this time to raise awareness about important safety issues like:
- Preventing poisonings
- Medication safety and prescription drug abuse
- Driving, biking, and working safely
- First aid and emergency preparedness
- Preventing slips, trips, and falls
Everyone can get involved in reducing the risk of injuries. Together, we can share information about steps people can take to protect themselves and others.
