June Is National Safety Month €” Be Safe With Medical ID Jewelry
by N-Style ID
National Safety Month is a month where we as individuals, mentors, health providers, and business owners can increase our focus on safety for everyone with whom they're involved. The National Safety Council has implemented a different focus for each week of June that allows us to get a better understanding of exactly how to increase safety. If you ask us, we believe medical ID jewelry is a large part of this. While prevention is key, you also need to be prepared when an emergency arises €” and that's where medical ID jewelry comes into the picture. In today's blog, we're going to briefly discuss the four focuses of National Safety Month, along with how medical ID jewelry could help. If you're in need of silicone medical alert bracelets, leather medical alert bracelets, diabetic alert necklaces, or any other engraved medical ID bracelets, then shop with N-Style ID today.
Week 1: Hazard Recognition
The priority for the first week of June is to improve hazard recognition. By not even recognizing hazards, you could be at risk of many accidents or threats to your safety. While medical ID jewelry will help in an emergency, that emergency may have been preventable from the beginning by seeing risks more easily. Check out the National Safety Council's tip sheet for learning to see hazards.
Week 2: Slips, Trips, and Falls
Everyone knows about slip and fall accidents and how they relate to personal injury. However, if you have a condition or an allergy that could be worsened by a slip or fall, then you must be especially careful. Let's say you do experience a bad fall and first responders arrive at the scene €” your engraved medical ID bracelet could let them know of allergies you have to specific medications. Check out the National Safety Council's tip sheet for preventing slips, trips, and falls.
Week 3: Fatigue
Do you suffer from a sleep disorder? If so, you're not alone: 70 million Americans have a sleep disorder. Fatigue can put you at serious risk of injury or danger, lower productivity, and even exacerbate health problems. Have more questions about fatigue and how it relates to safety? Check out the National Safety Council's tip sheet for fighting fatigue risks.
Week 4: Impairment
When most people think of impairment, they tend to think of driving drunk. However, being drugged (including by prescription drugs) or drowsy can severely affect your state of awareness. You want to stay safe in the workplace, at home, and while out and about. By paying attention to influences that could impair your judgment or medications and by wearing medical alert bracelets, you can increase your chances of safety. Check out the National Safety Council's tip sheet for knowing when you're too impaired to work.
