Our Mission

To strengthen individuals, families and organizations by helping prevent injuries and support safer, healthier lives.

What We Do

The Minnesota Safety Council is a member-based, private, not-for-profit organization dedicated to preventing unintentional injuries - a leading cause of death, disability and economic loss.

Our classes, seminars and consultation help employers develop safety programs, comply with regulations and keep their workers safe.

We offer traffic programs for the workplace and the larger community, including defensive driving classes for mature drivers and interactive online programs for teens.

We provide numerous resources and programs to support safety at home and in the community and serve as the lead agency for Safe Kids Minnesota, a statewide network of organizations involved in preventing childhood injury.

We believe in the strength of coalition; convening and working in partnership with other organizations is central to our mission.

Since 1928, our sole focus has been to make Minnesota a safer and healthier place to live. We hope you'll join us in that effort!

The Minnesota Safety Council is a chapter of the National Safety Council
