Allen County Employers Earn Workplace Safety Recognition

In conjunction with the Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation Division of Safety & Hygiene, the West Central Ohio Safety Council presents safety awards to promote greater interest in the prevention of occupational accidents and disease. Members with the highest safety records were honored at the WCOSC 63rd annual awards banquet in Lima.

Awards were presented to qualifying businesses in the following categories:
Group Award – lowest incident rate in each group;
100% Award – zero injuries or illnesses resulting in a day or more away from work in the previous calendar year;
Achievement Award – 25-percent reduction in incident rate from the previous year;
Special Award – at least 500,000 hours and at least six months without an injury resulting in a day or more away from work.
On April 9th, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and the Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation (BWC) honored 49 local employers for zero injuries or illnesses resulting in a day or more away from work in the previous calendar year.
“A healthy workforce is crucial to ensuring that Ohio’s economy remains strong, and I applaud these businesses for their commitment to workplace safety,” said Governor DeWine. “These Allen County employers have demonstrated a commitment to safety, and I congratulate them on this special
recognition.”
