Sponsored by the National Safety Council (NSC), and held every June, National Safety Month is an opportunity for individuals and organizations to assess their strategy on preventing unnecessary workplace injuries, whether it be on the road, at work or at home. This year, the NSC’s efforts are focused on safety strategy and ensuring employee’s feel inherently safe on the job.

These employees support over 5,000 customers in a variety of different industries and solution driven environments. In addition to this, Kurita America has seven U.S.-based offices and facilities, where employees are manufacturing industrial-sized equipment, blending water treatment chemicals, and in harmony, moving man and material through transportation.
