Minnesota Safety Council
Active dates:June 1, 1928 -
Governor Theodore Christianson
Function: The mission of the Minnesota Safety Council is to make Minnesota a safer and healthier place to live by helping prevent unintentional injuries at home, on the road, at work and at play.
In November 1926, a rising tide of traffic injuries and deaths prompted Governor Theodore Christianson to convene the first Minnesota Conference on Street and Highway Safety. The conference endorsed a resolution "to arrange for a permanent organization to promote the safety of the public...not only upon state highways, but industrial and all branches of safety in which the public is interested." On June 1, 1928, that organization-the Minnesota Safety Council-was formed.
