NSC acquires ORC HSE Strategies LLC
Itasca, IL — The National Safety Council has acquired ORC HSE Strategies LLC, a move aimed at strengthening the council’s ability to provide workplace safety consulting services to employers and safety leaders at both the national and global levels.
ORC HSE and NSC are member-based organizations, and the acquisition will allow additional opportunities for benchmarking, networking, training and thought leadership, the council states in a Nov. 2 press release. ORC HSE will become part of the Workplace Practice Area at NSC, led by Vice President of Workplace Safety Mark Baker.
The acquisition of ORC HSE is “doubling down on the promise NSC made to U.S. employers more than a century ago: to provide the resources needed to ensure no one dies or is injured at work,” NSC President and CEO Lorraine M. Martin said in the release. “ORC HSE shares the NSC vision and commitment to helping people live their fullest lives, from the workplace to anyplace. We are delighted to join forces to lead safety into the future in a world undone by a pandemic, help companies advance on their own safety journey, and eliminate preventable workplace deaths and injuries once and for all.”
ORC HSE Strategies Partner Steve Newell said the company is “thrilled” to become part of NSC.
“Our goal has long been to become the premier HSE networking and service firm, connecting HSE thought leaders and driving continuous learning and innovation,” Newell said. “We are excited to join forces with NSC so that together we can advance worker protection and deliver exceptional value for our stakeholders.”
