Safe Labor Day Wishes from Your Friends at Precision Electronic Glass
Wishing You A Safe Labor Day Weekend
Safe Labor Day is something many take for granted in the United States. But in truth, it wasn’t always so. The history of safety in the workplace and in the public arena is a very special one. While it is greatly improved over the past 100 years, chaos and anxiety are on the rise. Yet, despite causes for concern, we also have much to be grateful for and much to celebrate.
We salute the workers in America who make daily contributions to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. Thank you for your dedication and hard work. Consequently, in honor of our employees and the employees of our customers, Precision Electronic Glass will be closed Monday, Sept. 6. From everyone at PEG, we wish you all a happy, safe Labor Day weekend.
What it Means to Have a Happy Labor Day
Labor Day is the first Monday in September. It is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. As a result, Labor Day is a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to our nation’s strength, prosperity, and well-being. So, when we say have a happy, safe Labor Day, we are really saying, enjoy the fruits of your labors. You have earned it!
How to Have a Safe Labor Day
Labor Day is one of the most dangerous of the holidays, primarily due to drunk driving. In fact, the National Safety Council (NSC) estimates this year’s holiday fatalities will be 19% higher than 2020, reflecting the overall increase in motor-vehicle deaths in 2021. Holidays are a great time for families to travel. Many choose car travel, which has the highest fatality rate of any major form of transportation. Holidays are also often a cause for celebrations that involve alcohol consumption.
But drunk driving is not the only precautionary tale to be wary of this Labor Day. If you plan to keep your family safe, consider these scenarios and how you might prepare.
- Properly refrigerate, prepare, cook, and serve all perishable foods for a safe Labor Day.
- Brush up on your water safety, especially when swimming with children.
- A weekend in the great outdoors is even better when you follow outdoor safety guidelines.
- In case this Labor Day turns into a scorcher, be prepared to handle excessive heat.
- When going to the shore, be prepared to recognize the nine beach dangers and respond to them.
- And, of course, we all have to keep COVID precautions in mind.
