June is National Safety Month. Established in 1996 by the National Safety Council, the month of June is set aside to focus on safety at work, on the road, and in homes and communities.
For a staffing service, workplace safety is a high priority every month of the year, and at Assured Staffing we take safety seriously. We heartily endorse the NSC’s statement regarding safety at work:
“Safety is everyone’s responsibility. Employers are responsible to provide a safe work environment, the financial support, management oversight, tools and training workers need to do their jobs safely. Both management and workers need to do their part to make safety a personal priority. Together, these elements are part of a greater safety management system – one which aims to continuously identify hazards and reduce risks to an acceptable level thus lessening the likelihood of an incident occurring on the job.”
We encourage all workers to take the SafeAtWork Pledge! An injury-free workplace is possible when safety is everyone’s job.
