Off-the-Job Safety

Practicing safe behavior doesn't begin and end at your workplace doors. We know that every 7 seconds a worker is injured on the job, but did you know that more than 70% of preventable deaths occur at home or in our communities, while people are doing everyday things? This is why it is so important to bring safety home to your family, friends and community to help educate everyone on safe behaviors.

National Safety Council provides important and sharable information for you to use. Check back quarterly for new information on important topics that will help everyone stay safe!
