At Work At Home On the Road

The Rising Stars of Safety

  • Congratulations to the 2017 Rising Stars of Safety


    The National Safety Council is proud to announce its 2017 NSC Rising Stars of Safety. The 43 members of the eighth class will be celebrated at the 2017 NSC Congress & Expo in Indianapolis in September.

    "Our Rising Stars understand that safety is not a spectator sport," said NSC President and CEO Deborah Hersman. "Their dedication to creating a safety culture at their workplaces helps ensure their colleagues go home safely every day. We are thrilled to recognize their inspiring work."

    The honorees are featured in the September issue of Safety+Health magazine.

    Who Are the Rising Stars? 


    Every year, NSC honors individuals under age 40 with the Rising Stars of Safety Award for demonstrating leadership and dedication to safety at work. You don't have to look far to spot the Rising Stars in your organization. You see them hard at work every day and know them as the brightest of the bright.

    Nominees must have a proven track record of safety leadership and promoting continuous safety improvement. Any employee can be nominated, including employees working abroad. Nominations for the 2018 Rising Stars of Safety will open in February.
