NDSC Research Shows Need for Programming
Research and Survey Results
We often hear national statistics about the increase in off-the-job injuries and deaths throughout the country, but we never have proof, or we just don't believe that North Dakota is affected. Over the past months, the NDSC has done research to see where the need lies in North Dakota.
Blue Cross Blue Shield of ND, ND Department of Vital Records and the ND Department of Health all aided in the research process. We also sent out a survey to our members to see what kind of programming they had available for off-the-job safety and what they felt the concerns were in their community. As you will see when you review the information, some numbers are promising, and some very discouraging.
Through this research, we learned that North Dakota is not excluded from the dangers of off-the-job injuries and has further encouraged us to continue with our efforts in developing our new Home and Community program. This program will aid in encouraging employees to bring home the safety skills they learned at work to their family and into their communities.

The NDSC is still in the process of developing this program. If you or anyone you know is knowledgeable in this area or might have programming ideas, please contact Serena Schmit. We are open to new ideas for programming and safety topics that would be of interest to our members and important for the safety of North Dakota citizens.

"Family Safety and Health" helps employers reduce workers' compensation benefits, medical insurance claims, absenteeism and production downtime by educating employees about off-the-job safety. For just $1 per employee per year, companies can save money by making sure workers and their families have the best information available on health and safety issues that affect them every day, whether at home, on the road or in their communities.
