Manufacturers' Safety Council (MSC)

A Manufacturers' Safety Council (MSC) is an exclusive group of occupational health and safety professionals from CME member companies.

A MSC peer council provides a forum for the confidential exchange of information on a wide range of current health and safety issues. Meetings are highly interactive and participants are expected to share their experiences on various topics to help the group resolve their health and safety challenges. Groups also gain access to CME resources and trusted third party subject matter experts.

"The manufacturers safety council is an incredible resource for anything safety. Professional facilitators with a huge network of contacts in the industry. This group has significantly increased the safety in my workplace. Thank you CME!"
