Meet the sponsor

The National Safety Council saves lives by preventing injuries and deaths at work, in homes and communities, and on the roads, through leadership, research, education and advocacy.

By 2014, the council will save an additional 10,000 lives and prevent one million injuries. To achieve this goal, NSC will continue to partner with businesses, elected officials and the public to make an impact in areas such as distracted driving, teen driving, workplace safety, and safety in the home and community.

Workplace safety and transportation have been critical areas of focus to the council since its inception in 1913. During the ensuing decades, increases in unintentional injury and death rates in homes and communities have resulted in the council expanding its focus to include safety in homes and communities.

The NSC encourages businesses and individuals to get involved, and provides a variety of ways to do so. Check out the Get Involved section of the website ( Home.aspx).
