National Injury Prevention Day 2023: Taking Action for a Safer Tomorrow

Every year, National Injury Prevention Day serves as a vital reminder to prioritize safety and take proactive steps to prevent accidents and injuries. On July 5, 2023, join the nationwide effort to raise awareness about injury prevention and foster a culture of safety.

National Injury Prevention Day

The Impact of Injuries

In Canada, injuries have a significant impact on individuals, families, and society as a whole. According to statistics from the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI), every year, there are approximately 4.5 million emergency department visits due to injuries across the country. These injuries result in direct healthcare costs of over $20 billion annually, not including the immeasurable emotional and societal costs. By observing National Injury Prevention Day, we can raise awareness and work towards reducing these numbers, creating safer communities and a healthier nation for all.


Key Injury Prevention Strategies

    • Launch an internal safety campaign specifically for National Injury Prevention Day.

    • Create engaging posters, emails, or newsletters highlighting safety tips and statistics related to common workplace injuries.

    • Encourage employees to actively participate by sharing their own safety stories or suggestions.
