As a reliable elevator company, DAY is focused on promoting safety in the home and community by providing high quality accessibility equipment. June is observed as National Safety Month (NSM) across the United States. Sponsored by the National Safety Council (NSC), NSM aims to raise public awareness about top safety issues and steps to reduce the risk of injuries.
Accidental injury has become the third leading cause of death in the United States for the first time in recorded history. The number of traumatic injuries treated in the emergency room (ER) nearly doubles during the summer. NSM is an ideal platform for individuals, employees, families, workplaces and communities across the country to identify key safety issues and find ways to reduce them. The theme for NSM 2018 – “No 1 Gets Hurt” – emphasizes the need to “start thinking about one change you can make to keep yourself, your loved ones and your co-workers safe”. NSM focuses on reducing leading causes of injury and death at work, on the roads and in homes and communities.
