American Association of Safety Councils (AASC) is a national association of non-profit safety organizations across the United States. Founded in 2000, its mission is the enhancement of safety & health.
AASC goals are:
- Promoting safety & health in the workplace, home and community
- Eliminating potential hazards and accidents in the workplace, home and community
- Promoting safe practices through education
Our objective is to provide a forum in which to develop and share affordable safety training programs. We have 17 US members of the AASC who provide workplace training through classroom training, on-site training and on-line training throughout a combined service area that spans all or parts of 16 states. There are several pending applications for membership from like-minded organizations in other States and Canadian Provinces, such as Manitoba and Ontario. The power of the AASC lies with its many member councils who combined have more than 5,500 paid member companies and thousands more businesses, organizations who employ tens of thousands of individuals. Through this expanded network, AASC is able to reach communities and businesses across the United States, and Canada. The method of delivering the safety message and training is ever evolving, with online training increasing every day. AASC has recognized this change and on a local and regional basis has been involved in on-line training for several years.
Our Purpose and Vision
Our purpose is to leverage the information and resources of our many member councils to better address the safety and health issues facing businesses, communities and individuals. Our ever widening geographic reach allows us to service communities, industries and businesses across the nation. We keep our members current on the latest regulations and best practices in the safety and health world. Our vision is to gain recognition as the premier organization for educating, communicating and promoting safety and health.
