"To reduce preventable injuries and deaths by developing and distributing world-class safety and health programs, training, and products."
Founded by concerned citizens in 1953, the Florida Safety Council was established to make the roads safer. The first office was located at 37 E. Pine Street in Orlando. At the time, named the Orange County Citizens Safety Council, the organization existed mainly to address traffic safety. Now, with classrooms and driving ranges throughout Central Florida, a fleet of over 100 motorcycles, 20 driver education vehicles, entire departments devoted to workplace safety and behavioral modification programs, and more than 100 instructors, the Florida Safety Council has become the premier safety training agency.
Today, the Council exists to promote safety in every phase of life - in the home, on the road, in schools, businesses, and industrial facilities. We represent people and businesses working together to prevent injuries and fatalities as well as the costs associated with them. Our funding comes from our safety training services and programs, membership dues, safety product sales, and contributions. The Florida Safety Council also holds an annual Golf Classic. The proceeds allow free safety training for those in need and support community safety programs.
Occupational related training addresses “hands on” safety education and OSHA Compliance topics, as well as broader issues of safety program development, culture and motivation in the workplace. Safety compliance and professional development courses are offered on OSHA training, specialty courses, customized training, and fleet safety.
