National Safety Council

“The National Safety Council is America’s leading nonprofit safety advocate – and has been for over 100 years. As a mission-based organization, we focus on eliminating the leading causes of preventable death so people can live their fullest lives. We focus our efforts where we can make the greatest impact: workplace, roadway and impairment.

NSC starts at work – where people put everyday strategies in place to solve problems. We give companies resources workers can actually use around risks they are actually facing, or will be. We create a culture of safety to not only make people safer at work but also because it has the potential to make people safer beyond the workplace.

… We tap the expertise, talent and passion of our network to develop research and ready-to-use toolkits to help companies tackle important issues affecting their workers…
NSC uses research and data to drive better, smarter, more personal safety programs. From perception surveys and assessments to tracking the trends, we use our insight to create real, usable, experiential education, training and tools to mitigate risk. We also engage government across national and local levels to advocate for awareness and drive polices that create a culture of safety.

In addition to offering best-in-class workplace safety training, both in-person and online, we spearhead Work to Zero to leverage technology to make workplace deaths a thing of the past.”
