• Recognizing Founders & Charter Members

    ​The National Safety Council recognizes founders and charter members – the organizations that make it all possible.

  • Thank you to these organizations who helped found the National Safety Council more than 100 years ago because they had a vision of creating safer workplaces. We all owe a debt of gratitude to them for their leadership and vision that still continues today.
