National Safety Council

The National Safety Council is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to save lives by preventing injuries and deaths at work, in homes and communities and on the road through leadership, research, education and advocacy. NSC partners with businesses, government agencies, elected officials and the public to make an impact in areas such as distracted driving, teen driving and workplace safety.

The role of NSC is not only to educate drivers of all vehicle types, but to monitor crash trends. When drivers engage in behaviors that increase crash rates and risks, NSC takes action. In January 2009, NSC called for a nationwide ban on all cell phone use while driving. This came after NSC researchers and statisticians reviewed more than 50 peer-reviewed research reports, many drawing the same conclusion about distracted driving.
