Safety First: National Safety Month

When 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 and more. 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 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, including a dropped sample or wet floor, where an injury or fall can take place. Proper lifting of supplies and equipment is also important.

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