Family Health Quarterly
To Be Sent to Employees

A quarterly newsletter published by the National Safety Council (NSC), “Family Safety and Health,” will begin to arrive at Berkeley Lab employees’ homes in September. A service supported by Deputy Director Sally Benson and the Environment, Health and Safety Division, the newsletter’s distribution is intended to help employees with health and safety issues in the home. Among its features are seasonal stories that address issues present during that particular time of year. The NSC is a federally chartered organization having the mission to educate and influence society to adopt safety, health and environmental policies, practices and procedures that prevent and mitigate human suffering.
