Career center awarded for safety record

Greene County News

COLUMBUS — The Greene County Career Center was recently recognized by the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation for its strong workplace safety record.

The center is one of several around the state to receive BWC’s Special Award for Safety for at least 500,000 hours and six months without an injury resulting in a day or more away from work. The center recently reached 1,220,671 hours worked without such incident.

“The career center has not only received a special recognition for an outstanding accomplishment, it more importantly has demonstrated a commitment to sending workers home safely each night,” said BWC acting administrator/CEO Sarah Morrison. “I encourage each Ohio employer to strive for zero workplace injuries by making safety a high priority, which can help prevent claims and lower workers’ compensation costs.”

The award was presented during the annual awards meeting of the Greene County Safety Council, one of more than 80 across the state that serve as partners in BWC’s efforts to educate employers and workers about the importance of workplace safety.
