Unifying Alabama's Traffic Safety Efforts
     Working Together to Save Lives    
 
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 poverty. NSC advances this mission by partnering with businesses, government agencies, elected officials and the public to make an impact where the most preventable injuries and deaths occur, in areas such as distracted driving, teen driving, workplace safety, and beyond the workplace, particularly in and near our homes.

The National Safety Council is committed to helping its members and the public prevent unintentional injuries and deaths by providing knowledge and resources that enable them to reduce risks, engage employees, measure progress, and continuously improve their safety management systems. With local Chapters and global networks, NSC is the leading advocate for safety and promotes June as National Safety Month.

Check To Protect
This campaign is called Check To Protect, which debuted just a few months ago. The reason behind the Check To Protect program is because drivers should “check” their vehicle recall status in order “to protect” the loved ones in their vehicle. Visitors to the site can learn their recall status in a minute or so if they have their VIN. They worked on the Click It Or Ticket campaign in the 1990s, and they hope this will have the same effect. Right now, about 1 in 4 cars on the road has an open recall, and some of these pose very serious risks.
