Safety First: June is National Safety Month!

SafetyFirstWhen we think of safety at our events, it usually relates to food. We know the importance of preventing cross-contamination, keeping a clean work station, changing our gloves regularly, maintaining proper temperatures, etc. But it’s important to keep in mind there is another piece to safety that is equally important when performing our events—your wellbeing.

June is National Safety Month, an observance intended to increase awareness for the top causes of preventable injuries both on and off the clock. The National Safety Council reminds us of some important tips that can make a big difference in our day-to-day wellbeing.

Personal Health: Healthy choices in our personal lives—including eating a balanced meal of fruits, vegetables and whole grains, and adding regular physical activity to your day—can reduce the risk of chronic illness and disease.

On the Job: Safety is of utmost importance. Keep an eye out for potential risks that could lead to an injury or fall, such as dropped samples or a wet floor. Proper lifting of supplies and equipment is also important.

On the Road: Take precautions when getting to and from work. Cell phones, while an important part of our lives, can be a safety hazard. Keep them aside while driving so you can focus on the road just like you keep them aside during an event so you can focus on your customers.
