Focus on Safety During National Safety Month

June 01, 2020

Washing hands, wearing a safety mask, social distancing. Health and hygiene safety is appropriately a hot topic for discussion nationwide, but UT Police at Houston also seeks to have our community remember that personal safety encompasses safety measures that can decrease unintentional injuries such as those from workplace injuries or vehicle crashes.

June is National Safety Month, a time recognized by the National Safety Council (NSC) to educate the public on saving lives and preventing injuries both in and out of the workplace. Safety topics emphasized in 2020 include mental health, ergonomics, building a safety culture and driving.

While NSC offers several trainings, tips sheets and videos on these topics to member organizations, the UT Police at Houston provides the following free resources to our community to help keep everyone in a safety-first state of mind.

Safety classes

General audience safety classes are offered regularly to MD Anderson and UTHealth employees and students. Departments and work groups can also request safety classes. Visit the Education Center or Learn2Succeed to register. Classes are currently being offered via WebEx.

Community email distribution list
