BST Joins the National Safety Council's Campbell Institute

OJAI, CA--(Marketwired - May 28, 2013) - Global consultancy BST ( announced today that it has been invited to join The Campbell Institute ( at the National Safety Council as a charter member.

Charter members are selected for their demonstrated commitment to safety practice and business excellence.

"It's an honor to join the Campbell Institute and to be a part of a global body that helps organizations achieve and sustain safety excellence," says BST CEO Colin Duncan. "Like other members, we believe that worker safety is not a proprietary endeavor but something we all have an obligation to improve by reaching across organizational, regional, and cultural boundaries."

Duncan said that the Campbell Institute's mission is an inspiration to any organization committed to safety. "BST has long helped major corporations around the world create safer workplaces, but like everyone else, we care not only about safer workplaces, but also about safer roads and safer homes." In addition to the Campbell Institute, the firm has been collaborating with the NSC and other organizations to address distracted driving, improve home safety, and support other initiatives that reflect the firm's values.

NSC President and CEO Janet Froetscher cites BST's dedication to safety and business excellence as the reason for the Institute's decision. "It is impossible to overstate the profound effect that our member organizations will have on organizations, people, communities, and the environment worldwide," says Froetscher. "We know that BST will be a significant and vital voice in all of the Institute's current and future endeavors."

BST kicked off its membership at the NSC's Green Cross 2013 event in April by leading an executive workshop on safety talent management. Duncan says the event was well received. "Institute members challenge us to bring the best of our ideas and experience to the safety issues we all face."
