The National Safety Council is America’s leading nonprofit safety advocate – and has been for over 100 years. As a mission-based organization, we work to eliminate the leading causes of preventable death and injury, focusing our efforts on the workplace, roadway and impairment. We create a culture of safety to not only keep people safer at work, but also beyond the workplace so they can live their fullest lives.
- Be Safe: I commit to keep myself and others safe.
- Be Bold: I challenge the status quo, to make the impossible possible.
- Be Impactful: I exceed expectations for all those I serve.
- Be NSC: I work with others to achieve NSC results.
With safety being a key value for employees, this year NSC employees focused on safely transitioning to remote work, staying up to date on all safety training, and creating a culture of transparency and reporting among colleagues. NSC staff were able to improve internal employee engagement, increase safety participation and reduce injuries and illnesses.
NSC has gained a focus for proactive observation reporting with a successful launch of this initiative and a growing number of hazard identifications. With this approach, NSC has experienced no recordable injuries in 2020.
As a mission-driven nonprofit organization, revenue from our programs, services and philanthropic donations goes right back into our advocacy work so we can help people live their fullest lives.
