Injuries are a leading cause of disability for people of all ages – and they are the leading cause of death for Americans ages 1 to 44. But many injuries can be prevented when people practice safe behaviors.

Make a difference: Spread the word about strategies for reducing the risk of injuries. Encourage communities, workplaces, families, and individuals to identify and report safety hazards.

How can National Safety Month make a difference?

We can all use this month to raise awareness about important safety issues like:

  • Prescription drug abuse
  • Slips, trips, and falls
  • Being aware of your surroundings
  • Distracted driving
  • Staying safe in the summer heat

Everyone can get involved in reducing the risk of injuries. Together, we can share information about steps people can take to protect themselves and others.
