  • More than 9 times as many workers are killed accidentally off the job than on the job
  • Stairs or steps are associated with more than one million emergency department visits each year
snap surveys
SNAP Surveys
  • From 2 surveys last year to over 30 surveys this year:
    • Key Surveys:
      • Occupational Safety and Health
      • Corporate Wellness
      • Ergonomics in other industries
      • Teen Driving
      • Division Surveys
snap surveys12
SNAP Surveys
  • Occupational Safety and Health Survey
    • Surveyed: NSC Members, Non-Members/Customers; Chapter Network and Board of Delegates
    • Key Learnings:
      • The biggest issues our customers/members face are Occupational Safety and Health, OSHA Compliance, Safety Leadership and Workman’s Compensation
      • The greatest opportunity for growth is with classroom and packaged training
      • Preferred length of training classes is ½ day to one day-maximum
snap surveys13
SNAP Surveys
  • Occupational Safety and Health Survey
    • (Key Learnings continued)
      • Top Trends – Government controls, increased responsibility for security/homeland security and business continuity; increased workman’s compensation and healthcare costs; producing ROI through safety, health and wellness programs
      • Top Opportunities – Showing upper management that safety affects the bottom line – respondents stated the greatest potential for revenue growth for NSC is in Occupational Safety and Health program areas
      • Top Challenges – Multi-ethnic languages, cost/benefit tools, benchmarking tools, shrinking training budgets
snap surveys14
SNAP Surveys
  • Corporate Wellness Survey
    • Surveyed: NSC Customers, Safety & Health subscribers, outside list (Workforce Magazine/ HR), NSC home page visitors
    • Key Learnings:
      • Almost 60% of organizations offer some type of a Corporate Wellness Program to employees
        • Those that don’t just don’t have the time, money or resources
        • Over 50% of those organizations who do offer a Corporate Wellness Program to employees spend up to $50,000 annually
        • Employers realize the need to provide health education on emerging health issues and concerns including weight management, nutrition and diet, smoking cessation, blood pressure and cholesterol, stress management, depression, alcohol and drug abuse, and ergonomics
snap surveys15
SNAP Surveys
  • Corporate Wellness Survey (continued)
    • Key Learnings:
      • Employers prefer to deliver wellness programs to employees through personal health profiles, audits, onsite and intranet training, workshops and seminars
      • For those organizations that do not currently offer a Corporate Wellness Program to employees, they need financial justification for even considering such a program
      • Increased employee moral and motivation = increased productivity
      • Informed employees = healthier employees = less time off = increased productivity
      • Offer a ‘menu’ of Wellness related products and training
        • Price ranges, format variations/choices, implementation options
          • Good, Better, Best Product Options
snap surveys16
SNAP Surveys
  • Teen Driver Safety Survey
    • Surveyed: DDC Customers and prospects; NSC members > 100 employees, NSM opt-in customers
      • Key Learnings:
        • Nearly ¾ of respondents do not offer information to employees on this issue because they have never really considered this issue an employer’s priority
        • For those ¼ of respondents who do offer information, they do so because it emphasizes the company’s value it places on safety and it expands the organization’s offerings for off-the-job safety initiatives
        • Challenges to NSC: our biggest competitor is the free information provided on the internet, however, there is interest in offering on-site workshops with scheduling flexibility
        • Organizations prefer printed reference materials
        • Bilingual needs are not an overwhelming concern
employee perception surveys
Employee Perception Surveys
  • The National Safety Council conducts many employee perception surveys for clients throughout the year
    • Conduct 10-12 client surveys per year
    • Survey results tell each client what their priorities are, i.e., which components of their safety programs are perceived by employees as operating or not operating well
employee perception surveys19
Employee Perception Surveys
  • Key Learnings from NSC’s Employee Perception Surveys:
    • Survey results vary for each client and each location, so it is usually not possible to generalize results; however, one generalization we can make is in regard to a certain section of our OSCAR and BASIS surveys, in which employees indicate which components of a safety program they would recommend introducing or improving. Of the list of 40 components, these are the five that are recommended most often:
      • Annual recognition of individuals for accident-free performance
      • Supervisory recognition of employees for safe work practices
      • Design of the workplace to eliminate hazards
      • Acting on worker safety suggestions
      • Discipline for unsafe job performance
market assessment for strategic growth
Market Assessment for Strategic Growth
  • Methodology
    • Frank Lynn & Associates study specifically targeted respondents within the Utilities, Construction Contractors, Public Administration/Government, and Commercial/Private Fleet sectors
      • Based upon Injury Data
      • Based upon input from our Division/Volunteer partners
      • Based upon the perceived opportunity for growth
market assessment for strategic growth22
Market Assessment for Strategic Growth
  • Methodology (continued)
    • Study utilized web surveys, internal qualitative discussions, external qualitative discussions, government data analysis, NSC data analysis
    • Market Sizing – How it was done
      • FL&A used a combination of survey data and government employee counts to estimate the $$ size of each market segment
        • Consideration: sample heavily weighted towards NSC members
      • FL&A took the estimated total number of employees in the U.S. by industry, multiplied by the average annual safety and health training $ spend per employee, to estimate total U.S. market size
market assessment for strategic growth23
Market Assessment for Strategic Growth
  • Key Learnings
    • NSC Revenue Streams - an examination of NSC’s product purchasers list revealed that product sales are not necessarily a function of membership
      • 53% of product purchasers are members; 47% are former/non-members
    • Opportunity for growth within member companies appears to be significant
      • Across all product lines, NSC is chosen as the primary resource less than 50% of the time
market assessment for strategic growth24
Market Assessment for Strategic Growth
  • Key Learnings
    • Significant opportunity for growth also exists with non-member companies
      • Non-members are reasonably willing to purchase among NSC core product categories without being members
      • It appears to be difficult to get non-members to make NSC their primary resource, with the possible exception of DDC training
market assessment for strategic growth25
Market Assessment for Strategic Growth
  • Key Learnings
    • Perceptions of the NSC Brand
      • The NSC brand is perceived as solid among members and non-members; particular brand strengths include quality, brand name recognition, and value to the end user
    • Pricing Perceptions across product lines
      • Pricing doesn’t seem to be an issue
        • Respondents believe NSC pricing is competitive
          • Across product lines – by market segment
          • Across product lines – by primary provider
        • We compare favorably to major competitors
market assessment for strategic growth26
Market Assessment for Strategic Growth
  • Off-The-Job Community Safety
    • Respondents generally do not provide this type of training for their employees at their organization, nor do they find this set of issues to be urgent
      • Only 11% of respondents select this as their ‘most pressing safety and health issue’
    • Nevertheless, this category has growth potential because it impacts multiple aspects of Safety and Health
        • Aging workforce issues
        • Employee Wellness
        • Multicultural Issues
        • Employee Productivity and Employer’s Bottom Lines
market assessment for strategic growth27
Market Assessment for Strategic Growth

    • Bring more industry-specific products to market (for our key market segments)
market assessment for strategic growth28
Market Assessment for Strategic Growth
  • Key Learnings
    • Construction Contractors
      • This industry represents a significant growth opportunity
        • Estimated market size: $ 723 Million
        • Average Safety and Health Training Budget spend per employee - $ 296 (Highest of all NSC market segments) – and respondents expect their budgets to increase substantially
        • Despite the Construction market’s high degree of fragmentation, which makes Construction firms less easy to target, survey respondents indicate that safety and health training is a priority
market assessment for strategic growth29
Market Assessment for Strategic Growth
  • Construction Contractors (continued)
      • This market segment has the highest number of fatal occupational injuries and illnesses primarily due to falls; some injuries and illnesses relate to strains, sprains and fractures
      • There is a tremendous opportunity for Wellness programs
      • Multi-cultural issues are critical
      • JJ Keller is favored for DDC and OSH training
market assessment for strategic growth30
Market Assessment forStrategic Growth
  • Key Learnings (continued)
    • Utilities Industry
      • Estimated total market size: $ 479 Million
      • Average Safety and Health Training Budget spend per employee: $239, and budgets are expected to increase next year
      • Utilities are a very ‘targetable’ group of employees
      • The top 100 electric utilities comprise 66% of employees within the electric sub-segment
      • The top 8 wired telecom carriers comprise 78% of employees within the wired carrier sub-segment
market assessment for strategic growth31
Market Assessment for Strategic Growth
  • Utilities Industry (continued)
    • The top 8 cable firms comprise 78% of employees within the Cable sub-segment
    • Utilities respondents appear to be ‘joiners’ of associations
    • Senior or aging workforce issues appear to be slightly more pressing within the Utilities segment than other industry segments
    • Employee Wellness makes the list of top three issues most likely to increase organizational safety and health training budgets
market assessment for strategic growth32
Market Assessment for Strategic Growth
  • Key Learnings
    • Commercial and Private Fleets
      • (Responses from private fleets yielded a sample of respondents across a broad range of industries-all other)
      • Estimated total market size: $ 395 Million
      • Average safety and health training budget spend per employee for commercial fleets: $248
      • Health and training budgets are expected to increase next year
      • Multicultural issues are pressing
      • The top 3 issues most likely to cause an increase in safety and health training budgets are emergency preparedness, homeland security and ergonomics
market assessment for strategic growth33
Market Assessment for Strategic Growth
  • Commercial/Private Fleets (continued)
    • Fatal occupational injury incidences are prominent in:
      • Trucking and Warehousing
        • Injuries in private sector, wage/salary workers, government workers and self-employed workers
      • Electric Gas and Sanitary Services
        • Injuries to private sector, wage/salary workers, government workers and self-employed workers
      • Strains constituted 43% of all occupational injuries and illness involving days away from work
market assessment for strategic growth34

  • Key Learnings
    • Public Employees
      • Estimated market size: $ 1.96 Billion. This is the largest of all the market segments
      • Average safety and health training budget spend per employee: $89 – the lowest in all NSC market segments. Cost is critical in this segment.
      • Safety/Health Training Budget expected to decrease next year
      • Fatal injuries are not prominent in this industry – primary source of fatal injuries are in the Vehicles sector
      • Employee Wellness is a pressing issue
      • This segment is costly to pursue
market assessment for strategic growth35

      • The latest headlines
      • Meeting agendas, minutes
      • Newsletters and announcements
      • Special projects
      • Message boards
