The National Safety Council was founded in 1913 focused on fulfilling their mission of eliminating preventable deaths in the workplace, on the road, and in homes and communities. In 1924, the National Safety Council – Nebraska Chapter was established through the help of many Nebraska companies and business leaders to provide training, education and advocacy for the entire state of Nebraska. Since that time our focus has never waned. Safety is at the heart of everything we do.
Today our non-profit organization continues to focus on our mission. In 2019, our team engaged more than 45,000 individuals through training, education and advocacy events.
Many of our members have grown up with the “green cross” and recognize it to be the mark of safety. However, times change and we felt that this was the year to update our look as well. That said, you will see our new logo moving forward – in fact, you may have already noticed the National Safety Council has begun using the logo.
Even though our logo is changing our commitment to our members and to the state of Nebraska remains our highest priority. We will continue to be an industry leader focused on serving others and providing the highest quality training, education and customer support. By working closely together we believe we can keep Nebraskans safe at work, on the road and in our community.
The new logo pays homage to the historic green cross, while incorporating a modern look it also represents the four values as symbolized by the four corners that, together form a cross. Our core values include our passion for safety, the commitment to have the courage to challenge the status quo, the commitment to be a trusted partner and exceed expectations and to be an innovator focused on results. These are our commitments to you – we are Safety Without Shortcuts.
Together with the National Safety Council and our sister chapters we are excited about what the future holds. We are excited about new innovations in the world of safety. We are however, not excited about some of the trends that are happening that are causing safety concerns. We do believe that working together we can make strides towards eliminating preventable deaths and injuries. We look forward to our continued partnership – together we can make a difference.
