Nominate a Rising Star Beginning April 1
The National Safety Council will accept nominations for the 2017 Rising Stars of Safety Award April 1 through May 12. Every year, NSC shines a light on honorees' leadership attributes, safety initiatives and dedication to safety at work. Nomination information will be coming soon.
Who Are the Rising Stars?
You don't have to look far to spot the Rising Stars of Safety in your organization. You see them hard at work every day; you know them as the brightest of the bright. Nominees must be under age 40 and have a proven track record of safety leadership and promoting continuous safety improvement. Any employee can be nominated, including employees working abroad.
Meet the 2016 Rising Stars of Safety
The National Safety Council announced its seventh class of NSC Rising Stars of Safety at the 2016 NSC Congress & Expo in Anaheim, CA, in October. The 43 honorees have promoted continuous improvement within their organizations and created initiatives focused on measurable outcomes – key components of the Council's Journey to Safety Excellence.
"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 for the Class of 2016 were featured in the
