The National Safety Council is celebrating 100 Years of Safety over the next year and is launching the commemoration at the 2012 NSC Congress & Expo in Orlando, October 21-25. This year’s event, the Celebration of the Century, symbolizes a 100 years of collaboration and lessons learned, and will salute the leaders and milestones that have inspired a century of progress in safety with special events, exhibits and recognition.

“One hundred years ago, corporate leaders came together for the first Safety Congress and envisioned a national organization solely dedicated to the promotion of safety – the National Safety Council,” said Janet Froetscher. “Over the past century, the National Safety Council has stayed true to its mission, and through the safety industry’s combined efforts in education, advocacy and compliance, we estimate nearly 6 million lives have been saved.”

The celebration will continue throughout the coming year and the public can find historical information including a safety timeline as well as a variety of other safety information at nsc.org/100years. The Council remains dedicated to advancing organizations on the Journey to Safety Excellence to save more lives and prevent more injuries in the next 100 years.

Special thanks to the Council’s Centennial sponsors which include: The Dow Chemical Company, ExxonMobil, GPIC, UL, Chrysler UAW, Georgia-Pacific/Koch Industries, PPL-Pennsylvania Power & Light and URS.
