New Workshop Designed to Bring Safety Home

The National Safety Council says its straightforward vision is to make the world safer. It expounds on that statement, saying its members strive to save lives by preventing injuries and deaths at work, on the roads, and in homes and communities.

It is the latter part of that vision statement that will receive center-stage attention in a new-for-2009 "Off-the-Job Workshop" that will be conducted for three hours--from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.--on Tuesday, Oct. 27.

This hands-on event--"Bringing Safety Home: Developing and Sustaining Off-the-Job Safety and Health Programs--will be designed to help safety and health advocates make the case for off-the-job and health programs while showing them how to collect, understand, and use data to develop programs that are effective and relevant for workers once they leave the worksite. Experts will show participants how to create work plans for a successful program start-up, as well as discover their resource options and how to effectively evaluate their efforts.
