National Safety Month & Risk Reduction

Jun 13, 2024

Did you know that June is National Safety Month? National Safety Month is an initiative of the National Safety Council, and its purpose is to focus special attention on safety at work, at home, and in the community; “from the workplace to anyplace.” ¹

A critical aspect of safety is risk reduction through the identification of safety hazards. How are safety hazards identified? One very important way is through labeling. Labels play a key role in transmitting safety hazard information and warnings about any dangers associated with improper handling and use of a product, for example, hazardous chemicals. Labels give workers and consumers vital safety messaging at point of purchase or use; an immediate, on-hand source of information that helps to prevent accidents and save lives.

When you think about it, safety labeling is so ubiquitous that we take it for granted. Imagine what it would be like if there were no safety labels, no warnings about hazards or danger, no cautions around proper use of a product, no instructions about what to do if someone is exposed to a hazardous substance or is injured while using or handling a product.

Safety is non-negotiable, and the role that labeling plays in safety is absolutely critical. Effective labeling is foundational to risk reduction, and risk reduction is key to achieving safety for businesses, individuals and communities. A reliable, efficient, flexible and cost-effective labeling system is essential in plugging the “risk gap”. Each component in the system must be dependable and field-tested so that every safety stakeholder is risk informed, risk protected and safe.
