Columbus area employers honored for exceptional workplace safety records

COLUMBUS – Columbus area employers have been recognized by the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) for going at least six months and 500,000 man-hours without a workplace safety incident that caused a worker to miss a day or more of work.

Each employer received the bureau’s Special Award for Safety during meetings of the Capital Area Safety Council and the Greater Columbus Safety Council.

“Maintaining a safe workplace requires real work and commitment, which isn’t easy given all the challenges related to operating a business,” said BWC Administrator/CEO Sarah Morrison. “I commend these employers and their workers for making safety a top priority and for their example to other businesses. We want all workers in Ohio to return home safely each day after their shift.”
