Each Ohio safety council has the same goal - to increase safety awareness. But developing and maintaining a safe workplace is no easy task. That is why it must be a combined effort of local businesses and the community.
BWC's Division of Safety & Hygiene sponsors over 80 safety councils, across the state, organized through chambers of commerce, trade and manufacturing associations, or other local safety-minded organizations. These safety councils provide their local communities with quality programs addressing occupational safety and health, workers’ compensation and risk management education and information.
