We are all on a journey, a path toward zero injuries and illnesses at work.
The National Safety Council was founded as a workplace safety organization, chartered by Congress to examine the root causes of rising worker fatalities. We have made incredible progress, but we have a long way to go.
Deaths at work have risen to their highest number since 2008. More than 13 people still
die every day on the job, with motor vehicle crashes as the leading cause of death. The workplace is the No. 1 channel to reach individuals on and off the clock, and the Council educates millions of consumers through its 13,500 corporate members.
The Council's Journey to Safety Excellence, a workplace safety campaign, offers useful tools and a presents a compelling case for investing in safety. NSC provides extensive workplace training, which allows employees to make their workplaces safer for everyone. NSC also offers sponsorship opportunities for Green Cross for Safety awards, Rising Stars of Safety and the Young Professionals Division.
