NSC DE&I Commitment Statement

At NSC, we demonstrate our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion through our culture and our values. Our culture embraces all people regardless of ancestry, color, national origin, race, gender identity, sex, sexual orientation, age, religion, physical or mental disability, or veteran status.* We boldly empower our team to model respect and dignity. We find impactful opportunities for growth and development. We create a safe environment that includes mental, physical, psychological, and emotional protections. To be NSC is to deliver our mission by working together — our employees, members, and stakeholders — in such a way that everyone feels a sense of belonging

We believe that you can’t be safe if you don’t feel safe. Feeling safe requires a commitment to equitable policy implementation and promoting diversity in the safety profession. We must cultivate our own diverse, inclusive, and equitable work environment to deliver on our mission to save lives, from the workplace to anyplace.

2022 NSC Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Safety Champion Recognition 

NSC is taking action on diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I), with a commitment to recognize the importance of DE&I to workplace safety and health, and a pledge to help organizations identify and redress imbalances. To perpetuate DE&I in the safety community, the NSC Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Safety Champion Recognition will be awarded to organizations with a proven commitment to DE&I within their safety culture. Recognized organizations will have incorporated DE&I safety initiatives into their culture and core business strategies through major business initiatives where they strive not only to ensure physical safety, but foster an environment where every employee feels secure, welcome and included.

The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Safety Champion Recognition honors three types of achievement each year:

  • Culture – DE&I embedded in organizational culture (The NSC Psychological Safety Perception Survey is required for this category)
  • People – Diversity within safety professional workforce
  • Program Innovations – Administration of a significant DE&I-related safety program
     

Organizations can apply or be nominated for recognition based on one of these three criteria. 


Culture

Inclusion and psychological safety unlock the potential of a diverse workforce. Employee feedback is the most useful data source for measuring psychological safety – the main element being inclusion. NSC has developed an employee survey to gauge employee perceptions regarding psychological safety across key psychological safety dimensions and psychosocial risks to assess culture. Successful applicants will show how DE&I is embedded into their organizational cultures by administering the NSC Psychological Safety Perception Survey to employees. The Psychological Safety Perception Survey is required in order to be considered for recognition in the Culture category.

People

Diversity metrics are used to identify risk areas, prioritize, set program goals and measure the impact of initiatives. Applicants must either provide a summary of their organizational DE&I goals and how they are measured, or must describe specific initiatives taken by their organization that have resulted in increased diversity among safety professionals. 

Program Innovations

Underrepresented identity groups in the workplace can create barriers to both physical and psychological safety, ultimately putting workers and the public at additional risk. Innovation is key to eliminating these risks. Applicants must describe the specific DE&I program innovations or initiatives their organization has integrated into the current safety management system, with details on the origin of the idea, how it has improved safety and how the organization recognized those championing the effort.
