Companies Recognized for Exemplary
Safety Performance

April 11, 2018 -- The North Dakota Safety Council recognized 86 companies and individuals who displayed exemplary safety performance throughout 2017 during their Safety & Health Awards Ceremony held April 11 in Bismarck.

"There was a 40% decrease in workplace fatalities in North Dakota from 2015 to 2016," says Chuck Clairmont, NDSC Executive Director. "The goal of our awards program is to give recognition to those who play a significant role in keeping North Dakota workers safe."

The NDSC presented 94 awards to companies and individuals representing multiple industries including transportation, manufacturing, mining, and oil and gas.

"As a statewide non-profit, our mission is to save lives by preventing injuries and deaths at work, on the roads, and in our homes and communities. These award winners share our dedication and passion to this mission, and we want to give them the recognition they deserve."

The NDSC’s awards program is designed to promote incident prevention by honoring companies with outstanding safety programs, employees with superior safety records, and North Dakota citizens who have gone above and beyond to improve the safety and health environments in their communities.

 NDSC Shares Resources for Distracted Driving Awareness Month

April 3, 2018 - Nearly 3,500 people nationwide were killed and an estimated 391,000 were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving distracted drivers in 2015.* According to the North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT), texting while driving is a behavior so dangerous that drivers are six times more likely to crash than a drunk driver. Distractions not only include texts, phone calls, and emails but also GPS systems, computers, applying makeup, eating, and updating social media. All of these tasks take our focus off the road and create potentially dangerous situations for ourselves and others sharing the road with us.
 
In observation of Distracted driving Awareness Month in April, the NDSC offers these simple tips to help keep drivers focused on the road:

1. Pull over to use your cell phone, or let calls go to voicemail while driving.
2. If you have passengers in the vehicle, assign a 'designated texter' to send and reply to messages during the drive. Ask them to help you in activities that may be distracting.
3. Eliminate the temptation of answering your phone by turning it to silent and placing it out of reach.
4. Make driving your priority task: perform tasks like applying makeup, inputting GPS, and reading maps before you get on the road.

The public can help spread the message by visiting 
our distracted driving webpage to download free tools such as posters, fact sheets, and infographics. People are also encouraged to take a pledge to never drive distracted at www.nsc.org/pledge.
In an effort to improve awareness of the consequences associated with destructive decisions behind the wheel, the Run for Change Deutscher Family Memorial event is scheduled in Bismarck Saturday, April 21. Visit www.ndrun.org for more information or to register.

New Training Opportunities Now Available!
Hot topics, hands-on training and more

Part of our vision moving into the Safety Campus was to expand our lineup and make hands-on training more accessible and affordable for our state and region. In November, we completed our first rescue course on the new training tower. Attendees provided very positive feedback, making us even more excited to launch our next set of courses!

New offerings now available through the NDSC include:

Several of these courses include interactive hands-on components utilizing the NDSC’s training tower. This 26-foot prop allows students to practice multiple scenarios in a safe and realistic environment. Not only do the students enjoy the interaction, but it creates a memorable training experience and increased retention rates.

All course details are available in the links above, or click here to view our training calendar. If you’re interested in scheduling a private course for your company, call us today at (800) 932-8890.


Safety is about People 

Marlowe Ann Regan was happy as a baby, child, and young adult. According to her dad, Tom, she was ebullient – she could walk into a room and liven up the place. She had a great, contagious laugh and a real good giggle … Tom can still hear her giggle in his head.

Tom and Patti Regan lost Marlowe, their oldest daughter, in a single-car crash in May 2006. Marlowe was 21 and worked at Sykes while living in Minot with her boyfriend, Michael. The day she died was her brother Walt’s 19th birthday. Marlowe was traveling from Minot to Bismarck to celebrate his birthday with the whole Regan family.

“We were washing Patti’s van in the driveway and we wondered why Marlowe wasn’t there yet,” Tom remembered. “It was getting kind of late and all of a sudden we saw a sheriff’s car pull up.” When Chaplain Dan Sweeney got out, Tom thought Dan was just stopping to say hello since they were friends. But then he saw a deputy sheriff was with him. “They walked up to us, and I had an inkling something was wrong. Maybe it was the look on his face. I thought…‘oh shit.’”
