Wisconsin Safety Council Kicks Off 2019 Safety Month

Gov. Tony Evers Proclaims June as Safety Month in Wisconsin

MADISON – Wisconsin Safety Council – the state’s leading provider of safety training and products – announced on Tuesday that June will be recognized as Safety Month. The month-long observance, in partnership with the National Safety Council (NSC), will bring attention to common hazards in the workplace, at home and on the road, while offering tips to keep Wisconsinites safe.

In partnership with NSC, Wisconsin Safety Council will inform members and the public about the importance of safety. Each week, the Safety Council will highlight a different topic:

  • June 3-7: Hazard Recognition
  • June 10-14: Falls
  • June 17-21: Fatigue
  • June 24-28: Impairment

“We believe that safety should be a core value for everyone in Wisconsin,” said Katie Yeutter, Wisconsin Safety Council President. “Celebrating June as Safety Month gives us a unique opportunity to educate our families, friends, neighbors and coworkers about different ways we can stop preventable injuries and deaths. We value everyone’s lives, and that is why we value safety.” DSC_0155

Throughout the month, the Safety Council will host workplace trainings, release safety-related videos and conduct a social media campaign.
