Your winning game plan is at OSC18

By Abe Al-Tarawneh, Ph.D., Superintendent, BWC Division of Safety & Hygiene

Teamwork and planning are the keys to nearly every successful endeavor. This includes making Ohio’s workplaces safer and more productive.

This year’s Ohio Safety Congress & Expo (OSC18) has the resources all Ohio employers need to strengthen their safety team, from frontline workers to upper management. It also shows attendees how to draw up a safety game plan to cut costs and, more important, to protect their workforce.

OSC18 – which tips off today at the Greater Columbus Convention Center – is expected to host more than 8,000 attendees and will feature hundreds of educational sessions taught by safety experts from across the U.S., Canada and Switzerland. It also boasts a lively Expo Marketplace with more than 200 vendors offering the latest in cutting-edge products and services.

While visiting the Expo Marketplace, stop by the Safety Innovation Awards section and vote for your favorite of four finalists for this year’s awards. Then check out the exoskeleton display to see how workplace technology is making the leap from science fiction to reality. We also invite you to visit our BWC booth to learn about our programs including our new Better You, Better Ohio!™ health and wellness program for the workforce.

Safety – It’s a team effort is the theme of OSC18. And it truly takes a team to put together this annual event – now the largest regional safety conference in the country. From planning committees and guest speakers to the expo vendors and BWC staff, I truly appreciate the excellent work of this team in planning and executing this world-class event.

I hope you enjoy your experience while you’re at OSC18. I also hope you take the knowledge you’ve gained back to your workplace to bolster your safety teams and develop a winning game plan to keep all your workers safe and healthy on the job.
