BWC Safety Innovation Award

BWC established the Safety Innovation Award 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 2017 BWC Safety Innovation Award recognizes public and private entities for their development of innovative solutions that help to reduce workplace injuries and illnesses. (View Details)
