June is National Safety Month

Injury type and severity varies based on age, however it is the leading cause of disability for all ages and the leading cause of death for people ages 1-44.  Work safety, medication safety, falls, accidents, and emergencies are just a few of the topics we can raise awareness of.  Be sure to wear appropriate protective equipment (helmets, seat belts, etc.), take your medications as prescribed, watch for fall hazards, and have an emergency plan at work and home.  For more information about safety and how to raise awareness of these issues in your community, visit the HealthFinder website!
