Safety is crucial to the Army's readiness. The Army is joining the National Safety Council this year in recognizing National Safety Month. Taking precautions to maintain safety is essential both inside and outside the workplace. This year's Safety Month observance is especially timely because our Nation and our workforce will soon transition from operating under restrictive COVID-19 guidelines and return to more traditional operations. As COVID-19 has shown, we should always be prepared for the unexpected.
The Installation Safety Office is also committed to protecting the Army community and increasing awareness of leading safety and health risks at work, home, or anyplace. In support of National Safety Month, ISO will focus on a single topic each week and will provide a themed poster each week.
The following are the topics that will be addressed:
Week 1: Risk Management: Emergency Preparedness; June 1 - 5
-Where do you stand in terms of COVID-19?
Week 2: Office/Home Safety; June 8-12
-Assess your work area by completing self-assessment checklist
-What are the top two hazards at home and work?
Week 3: Ergonomics; June 15-19
Week 4: Driving; June 22 - 26
- How do you define yourself (disciplined, undisciplined, or indiscipline) when you operate a motor vehicle?
