It’s National Safety Month! Every year during the month of June, the National Safety Council encourages organizations to get involved and participate in National Safety Month. How do you plan to participate in promoting safety this year?
Here's a little background information: National Safety Month is an annual observance to educate and influence behaviors around the leading causes of preventable injuries and deaths. At IDville we’re excited to participate in National Safety Month by promoting visitor management tools and ID Maker™ Systems to ensure the safety of all staff and visitors.
Tracking visitors is an important part of ensuring safety, but it can easily get overlooked if a visitor management system hasn’t been implemented. Not only does it keep buildings safe from theft and violence, it promotes a feeling of security and well-being throughout organizations. If your organization doesn’t encounter a high volume of visitors on a daily basis, our temporary ID systems and visitor bundles include everything you need to start your visitor program.
Photo identification systems go hand-in-hand with safety when it comes to the staff that makes up your organization. The ID Maker System is a quick and simple solution to identify who has authorization to be on the premises, who is a visitor, and who is a staff member. Utilizing HID Prox cards for ID badges permits access control to each person who enters the building and promotes a higher level of security.
During National Safety Month each week is centered on a critical safety issue. This year’s issues include Employee Wellness, Ergonomics, Fall Prevention, and Driving Safety. Workplace safety is one of the most critical functions of any organization. Whether it’s ensuring the physical safety of your employees or providing a sense of security, it’s vital to ensure each and every staff member knows what is expected of them when it comes to safety.
There are various fun ways to engage your employees in National Safety Month. I suggest committing to having one meeting a week centered on the weekly topic and have a trivia game at the end. You can reward employees for participating with an extended lunch break, gift cards, coupons, etc. Or why not round up some teams to help perform A Million Acts of Safety. It’s a great way to get your employees involved and help promote workplace safety in your organization and in the community. Happy National Safety Month!
