June is right around the corner and so is National Safety Month. Can you believe it's that time of year again? Every year
during the month of June, the National Safety Council encourages organizations to get involved and participate in National
Safety Month (NSM.) NSM is an annual observance to educate and influence behaviors around the leading causes of preventable
injuries and deaths. IDville is excited to participate by promoting various products and providing tips to get involved this
Employee ID Badges: Ensuring that each employee in your building is properly identified with an ID badge is critical when
it comes to workplace safety. ID badges are a quick and simple solution to identify who has authorization to be on the premise,
who is a staff member, and who is a visitor. Integrating HID prox cards into your employee ID badge program allows access
control to each person who enters the building and promotes a higher level of security.
With photo identification systems, it's never been easier
to design, print, and wear photo IDs.
Track Visitors: This is an important part of ensuring safety but it can be easily overlooked if a visitor management system
has not been implemented. Not only does tracking visitors keep buildings safe from theft and violence, it promotes a feeling of
security and well-being throughout organizations. Whether you encounter less than ten visitors a day or more than one hundred,
visitor management tools and systems are an important
aspect of workplace safety.
Get Involved: Each week during National Security Month is centered on a critical safety issue. This year's issues include
preventing slips, trips, and falls, employee wellness, emergency preparedness, and ergonomics. This is a great opportunity to
engage employees and get everyone involved. Commit to having one meeting or activity a week centered on the weekly topic or
gather up teams to help perform A Million Acts of Safety.
Remember, it's important to think about the safety of employees and visitors every day of the year, not just during National
Safety Month. So get out there, get involved, and take part in promoting the importance of safety in your organization!
