Garage door safety month

Each year in June, the door and access systems industry recognizes Garage Door Safety Month. While the importance of safety is recognized year-round, June is a special month for IDA members to take the opportunity to share their professionalism and dedication to safety with consumers and the markets they serve.

The promotion of safety is beneficial to our industry, your company and the public. To help IDA members promote safety this month, IDA has created several resources for use: press release templates, social media outreach ideas, and a resource page of safety videos and FAQs.
