The National Safety Council, Nebraska Policy & Cleaning Protocol

The National Safety Council, Nebraska has implemented a disaster preparedness plan that was developed to advise our customers of our practices and procedures used to minimize exposure to members, customers and staff. This plan in no way guarantees NSCN’s ability to eliminate exposure of COVID 19; but we will do everything in our power to reduce the risk and protect employees and support our customers as much as possible during this, or any crisis.

While we believe that safety training continues to be a priority to our members, your health and welfare are also paramount. NSCN, in conjunction with our cleaning service, has implemented additional steps to sanitize and disinfect all classrooms, vehicles and office space.  As an additional precaution, we ask that if you, or someone from your team, has tested positive or been exposed to COVID 19 that they refrain from visiting our building as it is our desire to keep all of our patrons safe.    

For those organizations that have implemented additional safety protocol, online safety training is available. These programs will allow your training programs and business to stay on track and moving forward. These training programs are available here.
