What is the Missouri Safety Center?
The Commission on Higher Education in collaboration with the Governor’s Traffic Safety Coordinating Committee established the Missouri Safety Center on July 1, 1967. The Center is an organization, dedicated to injury prevention specifically in the area of highway and traffic safety. It draws together State and local agencies, business and industry, safety professionals, University personnel and the public-at-large in efforts to reduce deaths and injuries on Missouri’s highways. Center activities include programs of instruction, research, publications, public information, as well as, conferences and special services. Top

Is there a dress code for taking these courses?
Missouri Safety Center student attire must reflect our philosophy of maintaining an orderly and professional training environment. This policy is intended to define appropriate “student attire.” While it is understood that student comfort has a positive influence on learning, the lack of common sense and poor judgment in selecting proper attire can just as easily have a negative impact. Special attire may be required for specific courses and a list of courses and attire will be provided. Classes conducted outside during temperature extremes may be allowed exceptions. Enforcement is the responsibility of all MSC staff and trainers, as well as each student and guest. Special activities like group tours or use of the facility for non-Safety Center related activities may be exempt from this standard. Top
The following defines appropriate student attire but may not include all possibilities. Instructors have final decision making authority:
PANTS / DRESSES
- Appropriate: long slacks, blue jeans or lady’s capris-pants, standard dresses and skirts
