June is National Safety Month

The U.S. Army observes national Safety Month, promoted by the National Safety Council, annually in June. This observance focuses on reducing leading causes of fatalities, injuries, and illnesses for the service members and employees while on duty, off duty, while driving the nation's roads and highways, and while in the comfort of their homes and communities. This observance offers Army leaders a prime opportunity to review and revitalize their accident prevention efforts and reengage the force on all aspects of safety.

Observed annually in June, National Safety Month focuses on reducing leading causes of injury and death at work, on the road and in our homes and communities. NSC provides downloadable resources highlighting a different safety topic for each week in June:

  • Week 1: Emergency Preparedness
  • Week 2: Wellness
  • Week 3: Falls
  • Week 4: Driving

The Army Safety Center provides materials for leaders and Soldiers to bring awareness to safety hazards and ways to minimize risk.
