The National Safety Council Safety Ambassador Program encourages individuals to bring safety back home and into their communities to keep their friends, neighbors and loved ones safe.
The program offers numerous activities and tools for Safety Ambassadors to use to reach the public and save lives.
Safety Ambassadors can make a difference in large and small ways, from organizing a community education event on the dangers of impaired driving to ordering free Warn-me labels that prompt doctor-patient discussions about the use of opioids.
What is a Safety Ambassador?
A Safety Ambassador is a person who takes action to bring safety into our homes and communities, and to our community leaders. Eligible actions and activities are listed on the Get Started page.
Why should I become a Safety Ambassador?
Too many people are dying from preventable injuries. Today, unintentional injuries have risen to become the third leading cause of death in the U.S., but each of us can take action to reverse this trend.
Though safety improvements can be made in many ways, you can take steps right now to protect your loved ones, and the Safety Ambassador program gives you the tools to do it. The more of us who join, the safer our communities will be.

What's in it for me?
