Stop by the BWC booth when you’re there
Hello from day one of the 2017 Ohio State Fair!
We’re glad to be part of this traditionally significant event for Ohio residents and one of the largest state fairs in the nation when it comes to attendance.
From our spot in the Bricker Marketplace – booth 705 to be exact – we’ve had a great time meeting fairgoers both young and old to share our message of being safe on and off the clock. Our Division of Safety and Hygiene developed the theme Safe at Work, Safe at Home to highlight common hazards found at the workplace and around the house.
During the next few weeks we’ll bring awareness of these hazards to attendees and give them resources to help make their homes and workplaces safer. We’ll also be promoting our safety services and encouraging workers to partner with us to make Ohio a safer place to live and work.
If you’re hitting the fairgrounds for the rides and games, to see exhibits and to chow down on the famous food offerings, take a minute to stop by and say hello. While you’re there, play a round of Safety Plinko and pick up a copy of our informational handout. It provides basic information on hazards both in and out of the workplace, including:
- Electrical safety;
- Biological hazards;
- Yardwork safety;
- Chemical safety;
- Heat stress;
- Roof safety;
- Personal protective equipment.
Remember, safety doesn’t clock out. We hope to see you there!
