The National Safety Council is America's leading nonprofit safety advocate – and has been for over 100 years. As a mission-based organization, we work to eliminate the leading causes of preventable death and injury, focusing our efforts on the workplace, roadway and impairment. We create a culture of safety to not only keep people safer at work, but also beyond the workplace so they can live their fullest lives. NSC first launched National Safety Month in 1996 to educate and encourage safe behaviors around the leading causes of preventable injuries and deaths at work, on the roads and in communities. According to the most recent years of data available, fatal work injuries and roadway deaths are on the rise, with 5,333 Americans dying at work in 2019, the highest number of workplace deaths in over a decade, and 42,060 people estimated to have died on the roads in 2020, the highest number of motor vehicle deaths since 2007. www.nsc.org
