Safety Council Solutions (SCS) was founded by three safety councils: Contractors Safety Council of Texas City (CSCTC), Southwest Louisiana Safety Council (SWLA), and Industrial Safety Technology Council (ISTC). The three safety councils bought out a previous auditing company that was providing safety audits for the petrochemical industry. The three safety councils saw a need for safety audits in the petrochemical industry and buying out the auditing company was an easy transition to records and database for the start of their new business. The safety councils needed to negotiate the take over and begin their relationship with the petrochemical industry with this new type of service. The safety councils historically only provided safety training for the petrochemical industry. The safety councils were established to help support the petrochemical industry to meet federal requirements at a low cost.
