National Safe Work Month 2018

October is National Safe Work Month and this year’s theme is “A moment is all it takes.”

While it only takes a moment for a workplace incident to occur, you only need a moment to learn about the risks and hazards to avoid these incidents.

This October, get your workplace involved and take a moment to focus on safety.
