March is American Red Cross Month. The Red Cross® is well known for providing disaster relief, both here in the U.S. and internationally. They are also involved in numerous other health- and safety-related endeavors, such as organizing blood drives and providing training in water safety, CPR, and first aid.
As an employer, you want your employees to be healthy and safe, both in the workplace and at home. During the month of March, consider providing a reminder to your employees about safety at home. Even in the workplace, home safety matters. After all, when employees or members of their family are injured, their work is going to suffer. It’s reasonable to expect productivity loss, increased medical expenses, the need to train new workers, and more.
