The National Safety Council was founded in 1913 and quickly developed the mission of eliminating preventable deaths in the workplace, on the road, and in homes and communities. In recognition of Presidents’ Day, the Council took a look at six U.S. leaders who were seated after the organization’s founding and asked: Under which 20th century president was the U.S. made safest from preventable deaths and injuries?
Here is more information about each candidate and a few safety measures passed during each presidency.
Don't you miss the good ol' days? While it might seem a calmer and simpler time, it was actually much more hazardous back then. Remember before seat belts were standard? When most homes were painted with lead and playgrounds were basically death traps? Oh, and you could smoke in hospitals, restaurants – anywhere!
The National Safety Council has been here through it all, keeping you safer for more than 100 years.
