NSC Needs Your Help to Eliminate Preventable Deaths in Our Lifetime

  • The Issue

    Someone dies every four minutes from a preventable incident such as a car crash, poisoning or fall, and Americans are unaware of the greatest risks they face. The National Safety Council, the nation's leading safety advocate, is on a mission to eliminate preventable deaths in our lifetime through leadership, research, education, advocacy, partnerships and proven solutions.

    ​How You Can Help

    NSC needs your help to achieve this goal. With your help, we can continue to present the latest research, create public awareness campaigns, provide resources to keep employees safe and more. Unrestricted donations and program underwriting from partners like you will make significant impact toward eliminating preventable deaths:

    At Work

    Chartered by Congress in 1913 as a workplace safety organization, the Council has made incredible progress. But there is still a long way to go. More than 13 people die every day on the job. Join us in our mission to keep workers safe.

    ​At Home

    Nearly 30,000 people die each year from opioid overdose, more than 19,000 of those from prescription opioids. Join us in our efforts to eliminate opioid misuse​ and other preventable deaths in homes and communities​.

    On the Road

    As many as 40,000 people died on U.S. roads in 2016. It's the leading cause of death in the workplace, as well as for teens, and distraction is still a serious issue. Help us end this epidemic once and for all.
