On Thursday, April 13, the Stark County Safety Council and the Ohio Bureau of
Workers’ Compensation will honor area companies who are committed to
maintaining a safe workplace at the 2017 Safety Awards Banquet.

This year’s keynote speaker is Sarah Morrison Administrator/CEO of the Ohio Bureau
of Workers' Compensation who was appointed by Ohio Governor John Kasich in May
2016. Administrator Morrison will share the new and exciting things BWC will be
doing in 2017 and 2018. Learn about safety intervention grants, other states
coverage and two popular programs for employers.

Additionally, awards from the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation Division of Safety and Hygiene will be presented in the following categories:

  • Group Award (for the lowest incident in each group)
  • 100 Percent Award (for each company that worked the entire year without a lost-time injury),
  • Achievement Award (for each company that decreased its incident rate by at least 25 percent from the previous year)
