The Safety Council of Southwest Louisiana has been serving the Southwest Louisiana area since1955. Originally, the Council was a chapter of the National Safety Council. Today we are charter members of the American Association of Safety Councils (AASC) and the Association of Reciprocal Safety Councils (ARSC).
These organizations continue to grow each year with the simple objective of providing service and training to our respective communities to achieve accident prevention in the home, at work and at play.
Over the years, our community service projects have grown and we added a broad assortment of programs to support our local area industrial growth.
In 1992, at the request of local industry, the council began providing orientation and training for local area contractor employees with the prime objective of containing costs and providing quality programs. This led to formation of the Association of Reciprocal Safety Councils. ARSC has since grown to include over 25 councils across the United States and continues to expand the training base, and training programs to serve our industry with millions of dollars of savings each year.
Moving forward, whenever a need is identified, the Council will develop and provide quality, cost effective seminars, training and consulting to local business and the community.
