Title Environmental, Health and Safety Resources to Support National Safety Month
Introduction EMSL Analytical provides laboratory testing services, sampling supplies, test kits, monitoring instruments, personal protective equipment and other tools to identify and mitigate exposure risks to a wide range of occupational hazards.

Cinnaminson, New Jersey, June 3, 2024

As recently as 2022, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports there were 5,486 fatal work injuries recorded in the United States, up 5.7% from 2021. BLS also recorded more than 2.8 million nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses with private employers, up 7.5% from the previous year.

To direct attention on the importance of occupational safety, the National Safety Council established National Safety Month in 1996. The month-long observance has taken place each June since then and is designed to be a time for organizations, companies, government agencies and individuals to focus on workplace safety and health risks, and to make changes to reduce occupational injuries, illnesses and deaths.

For 2024, weekly topics for National Safety Month include:

  • Week 1 – Safety Engagement
  • Week 2 – Roadway Safety
  • Week 3 – Risk Reduction
  • Week 4 – Slips, Trips and Falls


“Preventing accidents, injuries and fatalities on the job is the responsibility of all employers,” said Joe Frasca, Senior Vice President of Marketing at EMSL Analytical, Inc. “This includes taking action to mitigate occupational exposure risks to infectious agents and potentially hazardous substances. At EMSL Analytical, we proudly support the efforts of National Safety Month. Our industrial hygiene and environmental, health and safety laboratories offer testing services, sampling supplies, easy-to-use test kits, monitoring instruments, inspection tools and personal protective equipment. These resources help to identify chemical, microbial and radiological hazards and reduce exposure risks.” 

Several years ago, EMSL sponsored an educational video about National Safety Month that can still be seen at: https://youtu.be/ygdLjYfG8z0
