Safety is Personal

Together, we can make safety a priority - from the workplace to anyplace.

Safety is real. Safety is about life’s irreplaceable moments. Safety is personal. 

When you go beyond the risks and the steps it takes to avoid them, you feel the result: You can be healthy and unharmed at work, get home safe to be with those you love, have your co-workers stay safe at work without being impaired, addicted, injured or worse. This is our mission.

Like other leading nonprofits, we position ourselves around a cause everyone can connect with and a pursuit everyone can be passionate about. It’s because we know who is at stake — employees, their families and everyone in their communities — that NSC as a partner, a nonprofit and a national resource, is so devoted to saving lives, from the workplace to anyplace.

Employee Mental Health is Just as Important as Physical Health 

Mental distress in the workplace can have a huge impact on productivity, safety, and healthcare and other costs. About 40% of American workers report suffering mental distress. NSC provides employers with tools they need to address employee mental health issues – just as they do physical health issues. During Mental Health Awareness Month in May, take time to listen to your employees and share resources that can help. Get the resources.

Philanthropic contributions are critical as we strive to create a nation focused on safety. Please join us in this mission. Help us save lives, from the workplace to anyplace.


Keep You Safe at Work 

NSC was founded in 1913 to make workplaces safer for employees. More than a century later, we continue to identify causes of workplace accidents and to find innovative interventions to make the workplace safe for you and those you love.

Keep You Safe at Home

About 125 people die from opioid-related overdoses every day. We’re leading the way in creating policies and educational platforms to help address this devastating crisis. Your contributions support our efforts to educate the public, prescribers, legislators and employers about the opioid epidemic and the roles each of us can take to bring about positive change.
