Join the National Safety Council in Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of National Safety Month

June is National Safety Month, an initiative of the National Safety Council that focuses on reducing leading causes of injury and death at work, on the road, and at home. NSC highlights a different safety topic each week in June—the topic for this week is “It’s Vital to Feel Safe on the Job.” You can download free resources at nsc.org.

Protecting temporary worker safety and well-being is a top priority for ASA, and the association is proud to partner with NSC in promoting the 25th anniversary of National Safety Month.
