Goals: All Ohio Safety Councils have a goal to increase safety awareness, but developing and maintaining a safe workplace is no easy task. That is why there must be a combined effort of local companies and the community. Ohio has more than 70 safety councils, all made up of local companies and typically organized through a chamber of commerce, trade and manufacturing associations, or other local safety minded organizations. These Safety Councils hold regular meetings to examine and resolve potential and existing safety issues. They inform participants about new techniques and products as well as provide a thorough knowledge of these services.
Who May Enter: The campaign is open to all companies, corporations and individual employers in Ohio.
