June is National Safety Month, and here at Connectronics we take safety seriously. We understand the importance of being safe in all industries we work with, particularly when our specialized connectors and interconnection systems are used in high reliability, high-voltage situations that can put worker safety at risk. We provide our top-quality parts to trades such as aerospace, defense, medical, nuclear, commercial/industrial clients, and more. Here is more about the important annual event on safety.
What Exactly Is National Safety Month?
National Safety Month takes place in June, focusing on raising awareness of safety in the workplace, as well as at home and on the road. By learning how to be safe at work, organizations have the opportunity to influence behaviors to reduce injuries and death.
This special month is sponsored by National Safety Council (NSC). The NSC’s weekly themes for June 2017 are preventing falls, reducing fatigue, prepping for potential active shooter situations, and ergonomics.
Being Safe in the Workplace
Connectronics takes safer approaches within industrial industries to safeguard all involved, whether it is National Safety Month or any other time of the year. Electrical hazards can cause serious injury and even death, as well as damaging property and causing fires.
Thus, we believe in following sound safety procedures and educating others in them to reduce these hazards. From fitting employees with personal protective wear to teaching emergency responses and fire extinguisher training, we practice what we preach.
Unfortunately, electrical hazards cannot be completely eliminated. However, the National Safety Council offers a handy electrical safety resource guide that includes a hazard observation checklist and other valuable points to increase workplace safety while setting up high-voltage or high-current connectors and related jobs.
Championing Electrical Safety
Connectronics is proud to practice safety year round and direct you to NSC resources for a safer workplace and environment. We support the National Safety Council throughout June and commit to making everyone in our organization a leader in safety.
