No 1 Gets Hurt

National Safety Month (NSM) highlights four leading causes of preventable injury and death on a national scale, providing the latest information and resources in effort to help keep more people safe. Observed annually in June, NSM focuses on reducing leading causes of injury and death at work, on the road and in our homes and communities.
