Our purpose and history

Who we are

Evergreen Safety Council is dedicated to workplace and roadway safety. A member of the American Association of Safety Councils (AASC), we operate as an independent, 501 (c)(3) nonprofit, non-governmental organization.

What we do

Established in 1932 as the Seattle Traffic & Safety Council, Evergreen Safety Council was one of the first nonprofit safety councils in the United States. When our community was little more than a strip of leveled dirt, we were already developing safety programs for the future of roadways and workplaces.

Like our name and our roads, much has changed since then, but our commitment to the betterment and safeguarding of people has remained the same. Today, our team of safety experts, designers, and educators create engaging instructor-led and online programs that help people gain the skills to be safer and more effective while at work or on the road.

Our programs

Our state-of-the-art safety programs include training courses for pilot car operators, wind industry transport teams, flaggers, Traffic Control Supervisors, forklift operators, and defensive driving.

Although headquartered in Washington State, we provide learning opportunities across the country. Several of our programs have been nationally recognized and utilized across the U.S. and Canada.
