What Are Some Good November Safety Topics?

Since November, starting with Thanksgiving, is the traditional start of the holiday season in the United States, a good safety focus for November is food and cooking safety. Another topic is flu season safety.

The large, elaborate meals served on Christmas and Thanksgiving are a prime time for people to be affected by food safety concerns, according to the National Safety Council. Make sure turkey and other meats are fully cooked before serving, and maintain proper temperatures so as to avoid foodborne illness. Additionally, November is the start of flu season, so get a flu vaccination, and practice regular hand washing.
