During National Safety Month, the National Safety Council helps Americans to prevent injuries from all types of accidents like slips, trips, falls to exercising regularly to prevent bodily injuries.

This month we want to promote safety around the home, on the road, and at the workplace. Below are some of general safety tips when you are out and about this summer, in your home and the workplace.
