COLUMBIA, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The state of South Carolina received an F rating for safety, according to a recent report by the National Safety Council.

The “State of Safety: A State-by-State Report” by the NSC "provides insight into promising practices, and it shows where states are on track or falling short on road safety, home and community safety, and workplace safety."

South Carolina was placed as the 5th most unsafe state in America.

The NSC ranked South Carolina road safety with a D, its home and community safety with an F and its workplace safety with an F, resulting in an F average.

North Carolina received a C average in the report, and Georgia was right in the middle with a D average.

No state earned an A in the NCS report.

"No state goes far enough to protect its residents from the leading causes of preventable deaths and injuries – commonly known as ‘accidents’,” the report said.
