By Erik Harden, Public Information Officer, BWC Communications Department

The holidays will be here before you know it! And if you’re like us, maybe you’re not quite done with your shopping. Well, we’ve got you covered with gift ideas to keep your adventurers, your do-it-yourselfers and your loved ones safe and healthy throughout the year.

This year, the experts in BWC’s Division of Safety & Hygiene who staff the Ohio Center for Occupational Safety & Health (OCOSH) have compiled this handy Safety & Health Gift Guide to help you give the gift that keeps on giving – safety and wellness.

The guide includes ideas for gifts to keep your friends and family safe at home and on the road. It also includes reminders about creating or reviewing plans in case of emergencies in the home.

Do you have weekend warriors at home? Check out the section dedicated to these handy folks for ideas ranging from proper footwear and hearing protection to task lighting and eye safety.

How about outdoor adventurers? From new harnesses and carabineers for rock climbers to gun safety classes for hunters, there are plenty of options to choose from.

The guide will also help you keep your kids safe with tips for buying the safest toys and products, from toddlers to teenagers.

Finally, it provides travel tips to keep you safe when travelling over the river and through the woods to grandmother’s house.

From all of us at BWC, we wish you a happy and SAFE holiday season and new year!
