I’d like to welcome you to the National Safety Council Government and Public-Sector Division. Our Division is composed of an impressive group of safety and health professionals representing a broad range of government and public sector organizations. Through our Division, we can collaborate on ideas, discuss challenges and share resources to promote and improve public sector safety and health. We are also determined to reduce the rate of injuries in public sector workplaces which are consistently higher than private sector workplaces.
Our Division conducts a bi-monthly business conference call and brief webinar on the second Monday of each month at 11 a.m. EST. You will receive email invites for these. These calls are our opportunity to discuss the business of the Division and work together on initiatives and goals.
Our Division's vision is “to be recognized as the leading safety resource for government and public sector organizations.” Our mission is achieved through “facilitating the identification, evaluation and provision of safety resources and best practices through the collaboration of Division members.”
