NSC Launches New Safety, Health Resource for Employers

The resource combines tools, materials, and activities geared to help an organization develop and maintain a successful needs-based program.

Nearly three times as many employees suffer injuries while not at work, according to the National Safety Council (NSC). To address this trend, NSC has created the Family Safety & Health Employer Resource, a tool for safety professionals, wellness coordinators, HR professionals, and others to promote safety beyond the workplace. This free online resource is designed to assist with integrating family safety and health into existing safety programs and targets the leading causes of injury, illness and death.

A comprehensive safety and health program can be financially beneficial, NSC noted. The average company pays an estimated $820 for every employee each year in off-the-job injuries, including costs associated with absenteeism, health care productivity, and unscheduled work interruptions. The Family Safety & Health Employer Resource identifies the necessary elements for a comprehensive safety and health program.

The resource combines tools, materials, and activities geared to help an organization develop and maintain a successful needs-based program. Five modules are currently available: building your family safety and health program, driving safety, preventing unintentional overdoses, vaccine-preventable disease, and tobacco cessation. Two additional modules – healthy eating and increasing physical activity – will be available soon.

To start using this free resource, sign in or register on the NSC website, then visit the Family Safety & Health Employer Resource page.
