Bring National Safety Month into your facility

In my last blog I wrote about National Safety Month – what it is and some thoughts on integrating outside-of-work safety topics into your workplace safety training sessions. This week I’ll continue my discussion on National Safety Month, but with a different focus – ways to “celebrate” National Safety Month in your facility.

I know that we’re half way through June already, but some of these ideas are easy to pull together. Others, you may need to wait until next year to do them, but you’ll be prepared and ready to go come June 2011.


I looked around on the Web for a bunch of fun and unique ways to celebrate safety. I’ve listed them below. Hopefully some of these ideas will be useful.

  • BBQ/Cookout: My company did this earlier this month and it was a nice “thank-you” type event
  • Safety Bingo or other games: Just give them a safety twist – my company sends a safety fact or information with the daily bingo number each day.
  • Safety Poster Competition: Have employees compete to create posters that either remind employees to work safely or outline proper safety actions.
  • Safety Quiz: Give employees an optional safety quiz. If employees turn it in with all answers correct give them some sort of prize.
  • Safety Workshops: Hold a workshop on a safety topic that is important or needs more focus in your facility.
  • Safe Employee Weekly Recognition: Each week in June have employees nominate an employee as the “Safety Employee of the Week” or something to that effect.
  • Safety Demonstrations: Hold weekly safety demonstrations or discussions
  • Safety Videos: Run safety videos in cafeterias or high-traffic areas
  • Safety Suggestion “Drive” : Run a safety suggestion scheme with suggestion boxes around the work areas & busy areas. Encourage employees to look for safety hazards in the facility and/or provides ideas for improving the facility’s safety

Now I know that some people are against providing incentives for employees to work safely, but in this case, I think it’s different.

These types of celebratory activities are a great way to say thanks for working safely all year and perfect opportunity to put some extra emphasis on workplace safety. They do not have to be tied to accident reporting and the like.


If your company is already doing things to celebrate National Safety Month, I’d love to hear about them.

Things To Look For In A Tracking System

A GPS vehicle tracker, especially land air sea tracker, is an online system that guides and displays the status of transportation of the goods from a specific spot to other different places, domestically or globally.
