It is National Safety Month and what better way to promote and encourage workplace safety than with these promotional safety products and safety apparel. Read on to find out why the month was designated, the importance of workplace safety, and ideas on promoting workplace safety with custom apparel, promotional items, and more.

History of National Safety Month

National Safety Month first started with the goal of making workplaces safe and promoting employee wellbeing. It is promoted by the National Safety Council, which seeks to educate businesses on steps they can take to eliminate workplace casualties and injuries and improve the health of employees in every industry. This year marks the 25th anniversary of National Safety Month. There is a specific focus on proactive safety measures, COVID concerns, feeling safe in the workplace, and continuous improvement.

The Importance of Workplace Safety

Promoting workplace safety is beneficial for employees and employers and is essential for every industry. In addition to caring for the wellbeing of those in the workspace, workplace safety is also known to increase productivity, increase profits, and improve brand image. Educating employees on safe practices in the workplace supports a safety culture and is a fundamental part of ensuring workplace safety. A great way to promote workplace safety is by taking time throughout June to discuss any practices your employees should comply with and provide the right tools to help keep them safe.
