The nation's leading safety advocate for more than 100 years, the National Safety Council is a nonprofit organization with the mission to save lives by preventing injuries and deaths at work, in homes and communities, and on the road through leadership, research, education and advocacy. Working to make the world measurably safer, NSC advances this mission by engaging businesses, government agencies, elected officials and the public to help prevent the fifth leading cause of death in the U.S. – unintentional injuries. The Council is data driven, relying on research to inform best practice solutions to safety issues. To make the greatest impact, NSC focuses on where the most preventable injuries and deaths occur - cell phone use while driving, teen driving, workplace safety, prescription painkiller use and safety in the community. As a catalyst for behavior change, NSC promotes April as Distracted Driving Awareness Month and June as National Safety Month. Acknowledged as the go-to source for safety, NSC provides a variety of educational opportunities – many through NSC University – including First Aid, Workplace Safety and Driver Safety courses, and is a leading source of occupational safety information through Safety+Health® magazine. The NSC Congress & Expo brings together the world's largest annual gathering of safety professionals. Through the Safe Communities America program, NSC certifies communities with rigorous safety initiatives. The Campbell Institute at the Council is the global center of excellence for environmental, health and safety and collaborates with top performing organizations to share research and best practices widely across industries. Celebrating significant safety achievements, NSC honors an organization with the Robert W. Campbell Award® for safety excellence and presents the Green Cross for Safety® medal to a company and its CEO for outstanding safety leadership. The highest safety award for an individual is the Council's Distinguished Service to Safety Award, given annually. NSC uses the concept of the Journey to Safety Excellence® as a roadmap for organizations to continuously improve their safety practice to ensure zero harm. A 501c3 nonprofit, chartered by Congress with local Chapters and global networks, and more than 50,000 members, NSC is committed to helping keep people safe wherever they are. -From: www.nsc.org
