• Mar 30, 2018 at 3:00 PM

Forty-four employers in Huron County have earned recognition from the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) for reaching a year without workplace injuries or illnesses that kept workers away from work for more than a day.

The employers received BWC’s 100% Award during the Huron County Safety Council’s annual awards ceremony.

“Accolades aside, I’m sure there is no better reward for these employers than to see their employees go home safely to their families after each shift,” said BWC Administrator/CEO Sarah Morrison. “Keeping workers healthy and productive is the type of commitment that we need to build a culture of safety in every Ohio workplace.”
