Each June, OBHG and thousands of organizations across the country recognize National Safety Month in an effort to save lives, prevent injuries and raise public awareness.
The observance was founded by the National Safety Council, a 501c3 non-profit that works to eliminate preventable deaths at work, in homes and communities, and on the road through leadership, research, education, and advocacy.
Throughout the month the NSC will highlight four crucial aspects of safe living:
Week 1: Emergency Preparedness
Week 2: Wellness
Week 3: Falls
Week 4: Driving
Workplaces are encouraged to download free materials (posters, tips sheets, and more), distribute the SafeAtWork pledge to employees, and share social media posts using the hashtag #No1GetsHurt.
OBHG’s strong commitment to safety is reflected in every aspect of our life-saving enterprise, whether it’s our passion for providing the highest standard of care for every patient, or our dedication to ensuring a consistently safe work environment for our clinical and support teams.
“Our goal is to ensure safe, equitable care to all and to support a culture of safety with our hospital partners,” says Manager of Patient Safety and Quality Libby Gardner.
“This commitment is reflected in the caliber of our clinicians, our participation in national organizations, and our leadership in the industry.”
