Council Launches Renovated NSC.org
In conjunction with last week's 2009 Congress & Expo, the National Safety Council launched a "new and improved" Web site at www.nsc.org. In addition to a fresh look, replete with a signature-green background, the site offers a more user-friendly setup and streamlined content.
The site is divided into the following seven main sections: News & Resources, Safety at Work, Safety at Home, Safety on the Road, Products & Training, NSC Congress & Expo, and Find NSC Near You. Clicking on any of those section subject headings brings up further targeted options. Choosing Safety at Work, for example, leads users to the following additional choices: Benchmarking & Measurement, Bring Safety Home, Emergency Preparedness, Employee Perception Surveys, Leadership, NSC Awards, Resources, and Training. The tools available on the site are designed to help safety professionals complete assessments and reduce workplace risks.
Among the other options available on the redesigned homepage are clickable headings that will take users straightaway to the NSC Library and a National Training Calendar. The council's library catalog contains bibliographic records of more than 137,000 documents. Among the resources included under the Library heading are an "Ask the Library Archive," which is a compilation of frequently requested topics; a "Library Alerts" section, which is a bi-monthly listing of selected recent additions to the library, segmented by work, home, and on the road; and a section containing links to other safety and health Web sites and e-tools on the Internet.
Another button featured at the top of the new homepage--"Success Stories"--takes users to a page on which they can share their workplace safety stories and/or read about company "CEOs Who Get It"--"it" referring to the consistent adoption of best practices for safety and health at their organizations.
