tec.nicum, the engineering services of division of the Schmersal Group, founded National SAFER Workplace Day. It is an officially registered national day which occurs on the last Friday of June. It was established to create awareness about the SAFER Workplace, with a heightened focus on machine safety to reduce the potential of near misses, accidents, and injuries.
The inaugural National SAFER Workplace Day was Friday, June 30th, 2023.

Machine safeguarding consistently remains among the top 10 OSHA violations yearly. Our goal is to provide machine manufacturers and end-users with the proper tools to help create a safer workplace.
