The mission of the Houston Area Safety Council as an innovative leader is building safe workplaces by improving the quality and integrity of the workforce.
The Houston Area Safety Council, a corporation organized under the Texas Non-Profit Corporation Act, opened its doors in September 1990 with the following original objectives:
- To assess and assure a baseline safety comprehension throughout the workforce,
- To provide 'state-of-the-art' records retention, and
- To provide safety training support for contractors and owners who did not possess in-house capabilities.
In recent years, we have broadened those objectives as we work to solve many of industry's more complex challenges, such as background screening, substance abuse, contractor pre-qualification, security, and more.
2014 Board of Directors
Oversight of the Houston Area Safety Council is performed by a dedicated group of volunteers committed to representing our membership. The Board of Directors is comprised of 11 contractor company representatives and one owner company representative, the Owner Steering Committee Chairman.
As an industry-driven 501(c)3, HASC relies heavily on committee involvement for direction and support. Several of our committees are open to our entire membership, while others are closed to Houston Business Roundtable and HASC members.
In serving the Texas Gulf Coast and beyond since 1990, HASC, Inc. has delivered over 6 million units of training and grown from a one-room office to two locations, including a 40,000 square foot facility. The membership of HASC, Inc. is comprised of more than 2700 contractor companies and over 350 owners from the greater Houston Industrial Complex and beyond.
