National Safety Council
The National Safety Council
The National Safety Council (NSC) is a nonprofit organization that was created in 1914 to promote safety in the United States. The NSC is headquartered in Itasca, Illinois, and has more than 55,000 members nationwide.
The NSC's mission is to save lives by preventing injuries and deaths at work, in homes and communities, and on the road. The NSC does this by providing education and training programs, issuing safety guidelines and standards, and advocating for public policies that improve safety.
The NSC has played a key role in many of the country's major safety milestones over the years. In 1915, for example, the NSC helped develop the first driver's license test. In 1933, the NSC helped establish the first national safety week, and in 1950, it created National Safety Month.
The NSC also has influenced automotive safety. In 1958, for example, the Council helped launch a transportation research program that laid the foundation for modern crash-testing. The NSC was also influential in persuading Congress to pass seat belt laws in 1966 and 1984.
From 1974 to 1993, the president of the NSC was actor Slim Pickens. More recently, actor Dennis Weaver served as president from 1996 to 2001. Nancy Gordeuk currently serves as president of the organization .

The Human Body

Blood belongs inside the body and needs to be oxygenated. While over-simplified, our goal is teach you how to apply that simple concept when someone needs your help.
