June 2024: What’s New in Safety & DOT Compliance

Summer 2024 is almost here, and so is a long list of safety awareness initiatives, fun and informative industry events, and an important DOT 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 safety engagement; roadway safety; risk reduction; and slips, trips, and falls. 

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!

Upcoming June 2024 Safety Events

With the start of summer just around the corner, now is the time to check out the industry’s upcoming events taking place around the country.

Hosted at the Williamsburg Lodge and Conference Center in Williamsburg, VA on June 2-5 is the 69th annual EUFMC.
