National Safety Council of India
About NSC:
National Safety Council (NSC) was set up by the Ministry of Labour, Government of India (GOI) on 4th March, 1966 to generate, develop and sustain a voluntary movement on Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) at the national level. It is an apex nonprofit making, tripartite body, registered under the Societies Registration Act 1860 and the Bombay Public Trust Act 1950.

To fulfill its objective NSC carries out various activities. These include organising and conducting specialised training courses, conferences, seminars & workshops; conducting consultancy studies such as safety audits, hazard evaluation & risk assessment; designing and developing HSE promotional materials & publications; facilitating organisations in celebrating various campaigns e.g. Safety Day, Fire Service Week, World Environment Day. A computerised Management Information Service has been setup for collection, retrieval and dissemination of information on HSE aspects.

To its credit, NSC has successfully organised many national and international conferences e.g. XIII World Congress (1993) and XI APOSHO Conference (1995) and implemented many a prestigious project. It also serves as a gateway to the state-of-art information on HSE aspects at the international level.

In the course of its services for the last 45 years, it has built up technical expertise and competence to meet the emerging challenges in the HSE aspects due to continuous advancements in technologies.

It has been doing dedicated service to the nation in developing and leading the voluntary movement under the able guidance of the Governing Body since 1966.
