This June we would like to encourage you to learn more about important safety issues such as prescription painkiller abuse, transportation safety, and slips and falls.

  • Prescription painkiller abuse: Prescription painkiller overdoses are a growing problem in the United States, especially among women. About 18 women die every day from a prescription painkiller overdose – more than 4 times as many as back in 1999.
  • Transportation safety: Doing other activities while driving – like texting or eating – distracts you and increases your chance of crashing. Almost 1 in 5 crashes (17%) that injured someone involved distracted driving.
  • Slips, Trips and Falls: Falls are one of the leading causes of unintentional injuries in the United States, accounting for approximately 8.9 million visits to the emergency department (2011 NSC Injury Facts)

National Safety Month focuses on reducing leading causes of injury and death at work, on the road and in our homes and communities.

If you have any safety issues or concerns, please contact us, today!
