How To Observe National
Safety Month 2022

The National Safety Council (NSC) observes National Safety Month every year in June. As a non-profit organization, NSC and its panel of experts play a crucial role in helping companies establish strategies to safeguard people in their workplaces. The NSC also provides valuable resources, promotional materials, and research-backed toolkits to foster a mindset of putting safety first. Safety is an important subject that residential and commercial sectors can instill with training and education. In the following sections, we discuss how employers can participate in National Safety Month 2022, create a safety-first culture, and mitigate risks in the workplace.

How To Practice National Safety Month 2022

National Safety Month is an opportunity for employers and employees to educate themselves on workplace safety. It aspires to help companies identify safety concerns so they can mitigate hazardous situations. Each year, the organization chooses to focus on different important aspects of workplace safety that can help safeguard workforce employees and assets.

For National Safety Month 2022, the agenda will focus on these four crucial aspects of workplace safety:

Week 1

Musculoskeletal Disorders and Ergonomics

Addresses work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSD) that exacerbate or cause damage to the nerves, tendons, cartilage, spinal discs, joints, and muscles.

Week 2

Mental Health

Factors such as stress, substance abuse, fatigue, and burnout can severely impair one’s ability to perform reliably on the job.

Week 3

Workplace Injuries

Workers who perform physical labor under hazardous working conditions need to be educated on critical workplace safety. Physical injuries and even death can be avoided by actively addressing recurrent concerns.

Week 4

Falls and Slips

It’s crucial to incorporate fall safety tips for the workplace to safeguard employees from fatal injuries and even death. Implementing safety protocols in the workplace can play an important role in educating employees on workplace safety.

How Companies Can Minimize Risk

Work with management to identify roles that involve significant physical strain. Thereafter, conduct an in-depth employee survey before appropriate mechanical, administrative, and ergonomic safety measures can be implemented to improve working conditions.

Educate management and employees on how to identify impairment of all kinds and help individuals address and overcome their inability to work comfortably on the job. Implementing mental wellness activities, workshops, programs, and camps will help address employee welfare concerns.

Management needs to strengthen safety measures for workers on the job by assessing workplace hazards and educating employees on how to conduct safety protocols efficiently while identifying persistent and new issues. For instance, subjects like forklift safety in the workplace can prevent accidents and injuries on the job.

Management needs to actively address concerns and formulate solutions when employees report safety hazards in the workplace. This is a way of making their health and safety a priority. Doing so will benefit day-to-day operations, productivity, and establish trust between employers and employees.

How Employees Can Participate in National Safety Month 2022

The NSC provides a wealth of free resources for National Safety Month that employers can incorporate into their workplace safety handbooks. Safety-related resources include:

  • Subscription to the NSC’s Safety+Health magazine
  • Downloadable talks, PowerPoint presentations, and posters on safety
  • Webinars from subject matter experts
  • Access to Congress’ audio library and safety seminars

NSC materials will make it easy for organizations to cultivate and build safety awareness among employees during this year’s National Safety Month 2022.
Here’s how employers can encourage employees to learn more about safety while curbing safety violations in the workplace:

  • Display workplace safety posters on bulletin boards, in cubicles, and in high-traffic zones where they can be viewed by anyone.
  • Share social media posts through personal and company accounts to build awareness and educate others on LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. The NSC suggests tagging workplace safety posts with “#NSC” to widen their reach and encourage engagement.
  • Get employees to sign up for workplace safety summits and webinars headed by NSC’s industry leaders and key players to understand the depth and importance of safety. Through these conversations, updated topics on safety can be discussed and put into effect.
  • Regularly distribute factsheets via email. These can include relevant workplace concerns (as proposed in the table above), statistics, and research-based findings on employee hazards in the workplace.
  • Formulate a solid business innovation plan to help companies get on board with the latest safety measures.
  • Get employees to listen to podcasts hosted by influential NSC figures from various industries. They can discuss the changing landscape and the importance of workplace safety.
  • Managers and leaders can conduct safety measure workshops and activities about:
    1. The importance of regular equipment inspections
    2. How to identify, solve, and report job-specific hazards
    3. How to create rescue plans in case of emergencies

Edison Parker’s Focus on Safety

At Edison Parker & Associates, we recognize the importance of workplace safety, and we’re excited to discover how National Safety Month 2022 can help us further develop and improve employee safety measures on and off the job.

With safety as a priority, we take steps to maintain a safe working environment and ensure that we have the relevant safety measures in place for our employees.

Our service trucks are equipped with emergency and safety equipment, and employees use protective equipment during certain on-site activities. Furthermore, every Edison Parker & Associates employee knows that they can purchase any safety equipment they need to ensure on-the-job safety.

Importance of HVAC Systems in Workplace Safety

A major safety concern for managers or owners of commercial facilities relates to the proper performance of industrial HVAC systems or heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. Industrial mechanical systems that are operating sub-optimally can put residents or employees in those facilities at risk.

Commercial and residential HVAC systems are important in maintaining good air quality, regulating temperatures, and supporting comfortable humidity levels. However, safety aspects related to the poor function of the components of HVAC systems and equipment are often overlooked.

For example, different types of HVAC units can single handedly expel pollutants into the atmosphere. If they aren’t regularly serviced and maintained, ventilation air filters will breed microbial growth and emit nasty odors.

Microbial growth can be aggravated by stagnant water leftover in cooling coils, drain pans, and air ducts. Addressing concerns related to the parts of an HVAC system is imperative before it impacts the health of individuals and entails costly repairs.
