June 2023: What’s New in Safety & DOT Compliance
Mariah Barr
6 mins read

Summer is almost here and so is a long list of awareness initiatives, fun and informative industry events, and an important compliance registration deadline. 

June is National Safety Month. This National Safety Council observance has four themes – one for each week of the month – to encourage awareness of on-the-job and off-the-job safety. This year’s focuses are emergency preparedness; slips, trips, and falls; heat-related illnesses; and hazard recognition.

There are also a few specific days in June worth highlighting. June 6th is National Secure Your Load Day, emphasizing the importance of properly securing cargo before getting on the road. National Forklift Safety Day is June 13th, promoting forklift best practices for improved safety. National Ride to Work Day is held on June 19th, representing the high number of diverse motorcyclists regularly taking to the streets. Be sure to drive with extra caution on that day!
