An organization with a related objective is the National Safety Council. They are a non-profit organization, whose mission is to save lives by preventing injuries and deaths at work, in homes and communities and on the road through leadership, research, education and advocacy.
Through research they provide educational resources and training materials to build awareness and encourage safety best practices. And, throughout the past 100 years they've empowered individuals and companies to save lives, prepare for disasters and prevent health risks and injuries. To help promote this cause, NSC has named June as National Safety Month. According to NSC, an estimated 6 million lives have been saved over the past century due to the efforts of their safety movement.
Together for the next few weeks we hope to further amplify and exemplify how to live a more secure life. We will be sharing resources, examples and tips on what steps you can take to ensure you are more secure.
2015 Theme: What I Live For
The theme of this year's National Safety Month is "What I Live For". What can you do to start living a more safe and secure life? We'll be sharing a whole month worth of simple things you can do to improve your home, office and health. And each week in June will have a theme from preventing falls, to employee wellness and summer safety and driving tips.
Show us That You're Protected During National Safety Month
We'll also be encouraging you and others to show how you're protecting your home by sharing photos of your home security system signs. From California to the Carolinas, Kansas to Tokyo, and everywhere in between, we want to see you proudly showing the world and potential burglars (or other security intruders) that you are protected. Upload your photos to Facebook and Twitter and/or share them on Instagram using the hashtag #ASecureLife.
