Safety Starts with Me
New York, New York (PRWEB) June 03, 2013
June 1st marks the beginning of the National Safety Council’s “National Safety Month.” National Safety Month is an annual observance to educate and influence behaviors around leading causes of preventable injuries and deaths. This year’s theme is “Safety Starts with Me,” and the goal is to engage everyone in safety and create a culture where people feel a personal responsibility not only for their own safety, but for that of their coworkers, family and friends. Mediaplanet’s “Home Safety,” which hit newsstands in USA TODAY in May, is a complete resource guide to preparing your home and family for both preventable dangers and unexpected threats that are out of our control. With tornado and hurricane season upon us, it is time we end the ubiquitous “it won’t happen to me mentality” and be prepared.
