safetymonth-juneEvery June, as summer officially begins, the National Safety Council celebrates National Safety Month. Thousands of organizations across the U.S. help the Council bring awareness to the importance of safety in our homes, highways, and communities. This year the Council is including the subjects of transportation safety and emergency preparation. Slips, trips and falls are on the docket as well. These safety reminders can help prevent injuries, accidents, and death – saving you financial and emotional distress.

Automobile Safety

While technology has increased the level of safety over the past few decades, human error will always remain a factor in safe driving. To avoid a costly, traumatic accident, it is beneficial to remember basic safe driving tips.

  • Defensive driving is vital to avoid incidents with other drivers who may not be as aware. Maintain safe distances from other cars and remain calm in high traffic situations.
  • Reduce distractions by avoiding texting and cell phone use behind the wheel.
  • Extra caution should be taken during inclement weather. In heavy fog, rain, or snow, reduce your speed and remain extra aware of vehicles around you.
  • Always wear a seatbelt. Statics report that over half of car accident fatalities may have been avoided if passengers had been wearing seatbelts.
  • Finally, maintaining your vehicle is imperative. Regularly check for worn tires and belts, working headlights and taillights, and overall engine health.

In Case Of Emergency

From an earthquake to a broken arm, being prepared for an emergency will prove advantageous when you least expect it. If you have a pre-existing medical condition like diabetes or heart disease, planning for an emergency can indeed save your life. Firefighters, emergency medical technicians (EMT), and emergency room staff all work with the ICE acronym: In Case of Emergency. This consists of easily accessible medical information they need to assess your state and diagnostic options during an emergency. Blood type, medications, next of kin contact, primary care practice, and basic insurance information are all documented in one place. Programming this information under “ICE” in your cell phone or flash drive will help emergency responders find the vital information they need.

Slips, Trips, and Falls

The Center for Disease Control claims that slip and fall incidents are responsible for over a million accidents per year. Head traumas, back injuries, and orthopedic injuries can result in a lifetime of chronic pain and financial stress. Common causes of accidents include:

  • Torn, frayed, or wrinkled rugs
  • Holes, cracks, or breaks in flooring
  • Wet and slippery floors
  • Uneven stairways
  • Excessive clutter or debris
  • Icy sidewalks
  • Pavement with cracks or potholes
  • Uneven ground
