Since 2003, the National Safety Council has maintained an Alliance agreement with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to help save lives and prevent unintentional workplace injuries. The Alliance was renewed in 2014 and has a focus on motor vehicle safety, construction safety, temporary and contract workers, and the importance of establishing an injury and illness prevention program. The Alliance also supports the NSC Journey to Safety Excellence.
OSHA and NSC partner in the development of compliance assistance tools and best-practice documents; convene, participate and exhibit at occupational safety forums and stakeholder meetings, such as the annual NSC Congress & Expo; and partner with other OSHA Alliance participants to address construction and general industry safety issues.
The following products have been developed through the Alliance:
The following additional products will be finalized during the current renewal period:
When you sign up for the Journey to Safety Excellence, you gain access to online tools, including a Safety System Assessment that is helpful in pinpointing specific safety improvements needed.
Contract workers often perform higher risk jobs with little management supervision. An NSC study looks at the impact of contractor management programs on contractor safety.
NSC is a proud co-sponsor of Safe+Sound Week in June. Led by OSHA, the campaign promotes the value of safety and health programs to address hazards in the workplace.
