One hundred years ago, safety leaders convened with a vision of creating a national organization dedicated to safety. The National Safety Council was born, and now the 2012 National Safety Council (NSC) Congress and Expo in Orlando provides the opportunity for thousands of EHS professionals and attendees to celebrate a century of safety.
NSC’s Celebration of the Century “symbolizes 100 years of collaboration, lessons learned and progress for safety across the nation. NSC will honor the advancements and accomplishments of organizations and individuals who have helped make safety what it is today.”
During the conference, NSC will host host Rock ‘n’ Community: Connections for a Cause, a networking and philanthropy event to raise funds for the Orlando Magic Youth Foundation and teen safe driving efforts. The takes place Oct. 22 in the Valencia Ballroom foyer of the convention center from 5:30-7:30pm.
Funds raised at this year’s Rock ‘n’ Community will go to helping children in Central Florida, especially those most at-risk, realize their full potential by supporting programs and partnerships that change lives, such as providing nutritious food every weekend during the school year for more than 200 children in need; The Magic Achiever Scholarship UCF Minority Program; and teen safe driving advocacy efforts. NSC is partnering with the Orlando Magic Youth Foundation and the Florida Teen Safe Driver Coalition for this event.
Additional NSC 2012 conference highlights include the Safety Trail, a visual journey through corridors of safety milestones from the last century, and the Safety Theater, which offers attendees a chance to view vignettes of videos and films used for safety advocacy along with historical footage capturing safety's development.
These events, along with a range of educational, professional and networking opportunities, will help rock NSC into its second hundred years of safety.
