Don’t “Duck” Out On Safety At Work, At Home and At Play

The National Safety Council (NSC), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to educating Americans on safety and health and stopping as many of the millions of preventable injuries a year as possible, will be celebrating its 100th anniversary in a few years.  The organization, originally named the National Council for Industrial Safety, was established on October 13, 1913 after a small group of industrial leaders from the Midwest concerned for American workers’ safety met in Milwaukee.

While educating Americans on safety, its statistics on injuries in the workplace are an important source of information for loss prevention efforts. The NSC also publishes and disseminates information on safety.  Over the years, the NSC has provided safety and health information on work-related exposures as well as those experienced at home.

Look for fact sheets on their website to share with your employees as well as your family.  You will find information on Spring & Summer Safety, Agricultural Safety, outdoor safety, and topics covering safety at home and safety on the road.

NSC develops fact sheets to help you easily obtain and share information on critical safety and health topics. Please use the social sharing buttons on each page to inform your coworkers and their families of the numerous safety facts and tips offered here. Our fact sheets are also available in PDF download format for your printing ease.
