About National Safety Council, Nebraska

National Safety Council, Nebraska (NSCN) was founded in 1924 as the “Omaha Safety Council” by a group of businessmen who concluded that 75% of workplace accidents could be prevented. Over time, we have changed our name and expanded to serve the entire state of Nebraska. 

NSCN is a private, non-governmental, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and the only National Safety Council chapter in Nebraska.  As part of the National Safety Council we are committed to promoting their top strategic initiatives including Workplace Safety, Distracted Driving, Teen Driving, Prescription Drug Abuse, Fatigue, and Safe Communities.

We are led by a volunteer board of directors and a staff of highly trained industry leaders and expert instructors. Our mission is to be Nebraska’s leading organization providing education and advocacy to reduce injuries and save lives in the workplace, at home, and on the road. 

We believe that all Nebraskans have the ability to make their lives safer and we are here to help. 
We are safety without shortcuts.
