Safety Innovation Awards

Innovations come in many forms – advanced technologies, creative use of existing equipment, or unique processes and practices. Tell us about the innovative way you addressed a workplace safety or health risk and you could win cash awards.

Congratulations to the five finalists listed below for the 2020 Safety Innovation Awards. Click the links below to view brief videos of their innovations. 

We typically announce the winners at our annual Ohio Safety Congress & Expo, which did not take place as usual due to COVID-19. Because in-person judging did not happen at safety congress, we made the decision to award the five finalists $3,500 each. We cancelled the in-person component of safety congress in early March. 

We established the Safety Innovation Awards to encourage and recognize innovative and creative solutions that reduce the risk of workplace injuries and illnesses. Showcasing the most successful innovations inspires other Ohio employers to develop innovations of their own. 

Update! Safety Innovation Awards on hiatus for 2021 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have placed the Safety Innovation Awards on hiatus for 2021. We will use this time to review the program and prepare to return for 2022. We hope you will apply when the Safety Innovation Awards return!
