What is a Safety Council?
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 83 Safety Councils across the state which are 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. They inform participants about new techniques, products and services, and provide a thorough knowledge of these services.
The Delaware Area Chamber of Commerce sponsors the Safety Council program in the Delaware area.
