Safety Innovations Competition

BWC established the Safety Innovations Competition to encourage and recognize innovative solutions that reduce the risk of workplace injuries and illnesses. Preventing harm benefits everyone - employers and employees alike. Showcasing the most successful innovations helps other Ohio employers in their safety efforts and can inspire them to develop innovative solutions of their own.

The fifth annual Safety Innovations Competition recognizes public and private entities for their development of innovative solutions that help to reduce workplace injuries and illnesses. (View Details)
