  • The importance of research and statistics in safety

    Effective safety management systems are data-driven and supported with scientific research and statistics. We use this knowledge to understand and prevent injury, ultimately leading to a safer world.

    NSC offers a number of data-driven services such as Employee Perception Surveys and Assessments to help organizations build a strong safety program.

    We have expertise in a wide range of safety-related topics, including:

    • Safety engineering
    • Epidemiology
    • Social psychology
    • Safety Statistics
    • industrial/organizational psychology
  • Our Expertise

    Since the early 1920s, the National Safety Council has published an annual statistical compendium on unintentional injuries and deaths and comprehensive illness data —first as Accident Facts® and now Injury Facts®.

    We also manage the international, peer-reviewed Journal of Safety Research. Published five times per year, The Journal of Safety Research, along with Injury Facts, are publications that have been cited extensively by safety researchers and statisticians.
