The Rising Stars of Safety

  • Congratulations to the 2017 Rising Stars of Safety


    The National Safety Council was proud to celebrate its 2017 NSC Rising Stars of Safety at the 2017 NSC Congress & Expo in Indianapolis in September. Learn more about the honorees in the September issue of Safety+Health magazine.

    "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."

    Every year, NSC honors individuals younger than 40 who show a dedication to safety leadership at work with the Rising Stars of Safety Award. Potential Rising Stars are easy to spot in your organization. You see them hard at work every day and know them as the brightest of the bright.
