Chartered under the Texas Non-Profit Corporation Act on October 9, 1991, the Safety Council has been modeled after other Safety Councils in Texas and tailored to meet the business needs of East Texas. The purpose of the Council is to promote and improve the safety work performance of members and their employees by establishing and providing high quality safety training and testing programs to provide a more consistent level of safety training, upgrading the safety management systems of member companies, and increasing safety compliance with applicable standards.
The Safety Council of East Texas is dedicated to reducing injuries, illness, and related incidents by providing resources, services and education to influence safety, health and environmental polices and practices.
The success of this Council is dependent upon member participation. It shall be the goal of the council to strive to continually increase membership. The achievement of this goal perpetuates a method of reduced training cost on a progressive basis and increases the level of safety awareness and safe work force area wide. It shall be the goal of the Council to continually maintain high levels of knowledge of regulatory, and industry changes or improvements in an effort to implement "state of the art" practice into training programs offered by the Council.
