What We Do

Reaching Out to the Community

While workplace safety requires much of our attention, safety awareness in the community is also important to us. Through support from our members, we offer several free services to the community annually, including the Safety Patrol Leadership Camp for fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth graders and Hand Hygiene Programs in elementary schools, along with awarding those who have risked their lives for others at the Hero Awards banquet. The Safety Council also holds an Industrial Awards banquet and provides informational brochures.

SCNWO Training Camp for AAA School Safety Patrol Leaders
