June is National Safety Month, and whether you work on a construction site or in a traditional office setting, safety at work impacts every worker in one way or another. For employers, safety can affect everything from workers’ compensation costs to productivity. For employees, it impacts the work environment, health, and morale.
Sponsored by the National Safety Council, National Safety Month “focuses on reducing leading causes of injury and death at work, on the road, and in our homes and communities.”
Refresh Leadership and Express Employment Professionals takes the safety of our Associates and clients very seriously. Below, you will find informational posters to help start conversations about important safety topics and how to avoid potentially dangerous workplace situations.
