July 5th is National Injury Prevention Day. Join us in promoting awarenesses about injury prevention, and why it’s so important to be diligent in injury prevention.
At SafeGen, we work to educate youth about workplace injury prevention, and the effects that even a seemingly small accident can have on your life. We encourage everyone to take that knowledge and use it to not only keep themselves safe at work, but also at home, and on the road.
Unintentional injury is the No. 1 cause of death of Canadians ages 1 to 34.
Most injuries are caused by preventable accidents, which means that keeping ourselves safe is something we can all do together.
We teach youth to spot and report hazards in the workplace, but what about your own home? Have you done a home hazard inspection lately? Have you talked to your teens about safe driving? July 5 is a great reminder to have those conversations, and refresh your safety knowledge in every aspect of your life.
Preventable injury kills more Canadian children than any disease, and more youth than all other causes combined.
Let’s work together to stay healthy and safe!
