On Tuesday, April 19, 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 2016 Safety Awards Banquet at Skyland Pines Banquet Center.

This year’s keynote speaker is Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Denny Saunier.  He will deliver an update on the Chamber’s role in regional economic development efforts, including Market Square, Downtown Canton’s new Refreshment District, Hall of Fame Village, Utica Shale and more. Denny’s career with the Canton Regional Chamber spans 36 years, including 15 years as president and CEO.

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)
