Itasca, IL – The National Safety Council is accepting submissions for its prestigious Green Cross for Safety awards, presented to individuals and organizations that have advanced safety at work, in homes and communities, or in transportation.

Green Cross for Safety awards will be presented in the following categories:

  • Safety Innovation – Recognizing an individual, corporation or organization that developed a transformative approach to a long-held safety challenge
  • Safety Advocate – Recognizing an individual, coalition or community partnership that has made a significant impact on safety by advocating for proven or promising practices to raise awareness or change policy to prevent further injuries and deaths
