National Safety Council


NSC Mission:
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.

NSC Vision: Making our world safer.

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

The NSC’s strategic priorities are based on scientific research that allows them to better define and understand issues and trends in unintentional injuries and injury-deaths, and develop programs to address these trends and ultimately save lives.

The NSC works at a local level through its nationwide network of 39 state and regional chapters that invites members and the public to more fully engage in industry-specific injury prevention issues. Local chapters identify safety needs of particular interest to their areas and deliver community-based programs and services, trainings, conferences, workshops and consultations, and serve as a local voice for safety advocacy.

The NSC was founded in 1913 and formally recognized as a safety leader by an Act of Congress in 1953 that granted a Congressional Charter to the National Safety Council. We are a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization and the only major national entity dedicated to safety of people in all aspects of their lives: at work, on the roads and in homes and communities.
