Orlando, FL—The National Safety Council announced today that it will sign agreements with three organizations in an effort to further advance safety and health initiatives throughout the United States. In separate agreements, NSC will partner with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and the Mine Safety and Health Administration.
NSC President and CEO Alan C. McMillan is expected to formally sign the agreements on the opening day of NSC's 93rd Annual Congress and Expo in Orlando, FL.
“As we begin reshaping the next era in safety and health management, we are calling upon leaders of industry, government organizations and non-government, academia and communities, to join us in accelerating efforts to improve safety and health conditions at workplaces and communities across our nation,” said Alan C. McMillan, President and CEO, NSC. “How well we build the next era of safety and health depends on alliances and partnerships such as these which enable us to pool our expertise and resources, to unite in a shared mission, and to advance our call to instill safety as a core corporate value among all businesses, across all industries.”
