June is National Safety Month: Get Serious about Celebrating Safety!

May 21, 2013

Safety is one of those topics: one that no one wants to discuss, but one that is of the utmost importance to your organization. "Every day in America, 13 people go to work and never come home. Every year in America, nearly 4 million people suffer a workplace injury from which some may never recover. These are preventable tragedies that disable our workers, devastate our families, and damage our economy." – Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis

Since June is National Safety Month, use this time as a reminder to your hard-working staff about the importance of practicing safe procedures and taking the appropriate precautions in the work that they do every day.

Here are 5 ideas to get your team excited (and serious) about safety!

Do you have regularly scheduled safety meetings? If not, schedule them! If so, kick off your meetings with an incentive plan for safe work. Once your team reaches their goal, reward them with our Serious About Safety Water Bottles or Stainless Steel Thermoses.

Celebrate National Safety Month
Safety-Themed Team Shirts

Outfit your team in Safety-Themed Team Shirts to spread the word and keep safety front-of-mind. Encourage your team to wear them on the same day each week to build camaraderie, as well!

Safety Print-and-Posts

Before your team gets in for the day, post our free downloadable Safety Print-and-Posts on their lockers, at their stations, or in their work trucks. These little notes are sure to make them smile, all the while keeping your message of safe working policies at the forefront.

Peer-to-Peer Safety Shout Outs

Encourage your team to keep their eyes peeled for safe behaviors with our Peer-to-Peer Safety Shout Outs. Dedicate a bulletin board in your common area to these Shout Outs so everyone can read about each others' achievements.

As a team member since 2005, Falon has worn just about every hat the 'ville has to offer. She's seen both sides of working life — as an employee and as a manager — so if it sounds like she knows what she's talking about, we're pretty sure that's why. When she's not juggling between the IDville and Baudville brands, she's been known to whip up a mean diorama - just like that!
