Area Companies Honored at Safety Council Awards Luncheon

More than 40 Findlay and Hancock County area businesses were recognized for outstanding safety records at the 73rd Annual Hancock County Safety Council Awards Luncheon held May 9 at the Findlay Country Club.

Area businesses and organizations were honored for their safety achievements by the Hancock County Safety Council, a program of the Findlay•Hancock County Chamber of Commerce, and co-sponsored by the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation, Division of Safety & Hygiene. Through its relationship with Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation, more than $75,000.00 was reinvested in the Findlay-Hancock county area business community in 2018 to continue efforts for providing safe work environments.

Businesses working for the entire year without a lost-time injury or illness were awarded the 100% Award and Group Awards were given to companies with the lowest incident rate in each group.
