NSC Mobilizes Nationwide Resources for Must-Attend Event

Since its start in 1913 as the National Council for Industrial Safety, the National Safety Council has weathered its share of storms. In 1941, it plodded ahead through the Great Depression and answered the call from President Franklin D. Roosevelt to "mobilize its nationwide resources in leading a concerted and intensified campaign against accidents, and to call upon every citizen, in public or private capacity, to enlist in this campaign and do his part in preventing wastage of human and material resources of the nation through accidents."

In 1953, NSC was rewarded for its efforts when President Dwight D. Eisenhower approved an Act of Congress that granted a Congressional Charter to the council.

Facing another global financial crisis, NSC President and CEO Janet Froetscher acknowledges there are no small expenses in today's economy and emphasizes the organization has worked hard to ensure its 2009 Congress & Expo (Oct. 25-30 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.) will offer "an enhanced mix of technical sessions, half-day workshops, technical tours and executive sessions at a great value."

This includes a 120 percent increase in "advanced" technical session offerings, a new "Executive Edge Track" with half-day workshops, technical tours, and off-the-job workshops--all for the purpose of making this year's event a "must attend."
