Helping organizations achieve and sustain EHS excellence

In undertaking its mission to eliminate preventable deaths at work, in homes and communities, and on the road through leadership, research, education, and advocacy, the National Safety Council (NSC) developed the international Robert W. Campbell Award to serve as a catalyst toward understanding the intrinsic value of EHS management in business excellence and sustainability.

In a natural progression of this endeavor, the National Safety Council, Robert W. Campbell Award winners and thought-leaders are the Charter Member and Founder organizations; without these two groups and their dedication to this endeavor, the Institute would not be what it is today.

Built on the belief that EHS is at the core of business vitality, the Institute understands that EHS is fundamental to operational and financial performance, and seeks to help organizations, of all sizes and sectors, achieve and sustain excellence. The true power of the Institute lies in the sharing of proven knowledge, actionable solutions, and best practices from leading-edge organizations worldwide. The Institute provides the platform for member organizations to disseminate EHS content through partnerships, events, and research – this is the transformative force in EHS. Each member is individually strong, but collectively stronger.

The Institute is the respected global thought leader for world-class knowledge on keeping people safe and stewarding the earth’s valuable resources. When it comes to looking after the health and safety of all individuals, on- and off-the-job, and their communities, organizations seek out the Institute for expert knowledge and progressive research.

The Institute empowers organizations of all sizes and sectors to become world-class in environment, health and safety through engagement and knowledge sharing. No matter where they are on their safety journeys, the Institute inspires all organizations to attain and maintain the highest EHS standards through the gathering and sharing of member best practices and lessons learned.

The founding principle of the Campbell Institute is that environment, health, and safety is at the core of business vitality. Those organizations that seek operational and financial success must address the protection and stewardship of the earth’s natural and human resources, the center of business performance.
