Coshocton County Safety Council. 

The Coshocton County Chamber of Commerce is proud to co-sponsor the Ohio Safety Council program, in collaboration with the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation Division of Safety & Hygiene. As part of this initiative, we aim to enhance safety awareness, provide valuable safety and health information, offer educational opportunities, and foster networking among businesses in our local area.

With 80 Safety Councils across Ohio, each comprised of local companies, the program serves as a platform for addressing safety concerns and finding practical solutions. These Safety Councils are often organized through chambers of commerce, trade and manufacturing associations, or other safety-focused organizations. Through regular meetings, Safety Council members come together to identify and resolve potential safety issues, share knowledge about new techniques, products, and services, and gain a comprehensive understanding of the resources available to them.

The primary goal of the Ohio Safety Councils is to create a safer working environment for all employees. By collaborating with local businesses, the Chamber of Commerce aims to improve safety standards, reduce workplace accidents, and promote overall well-being in our community. We believe that by fostering a culture of safety, businesses can protect their most valuable assets—their employees—while also enhancing productivity and efficiency.

Through the Ohio Safety Council program, participating businesses gain access to a wealth of safety-related resources and educational opportunities. They receive valuable information on the latest safety practices, regulations, and technological advancements. These insights empower businesses to implement effective safety measures and create a workplace that prioritizes the health and well-being of their employees.

The Coshocton County Chamber of Commerce encourages all local businesses to participate in the Ohio Safety Council program and take advantage of the opportunities it provides. By actively engaging in safety discussions, staying informed about best practices, and collaborating with fellow businesses, we can collectively work towards a safer and healthier work environment in Coshocton County.

We invite you to join us in this vital endeavor of increasing safety awareness and building a stronger, safer business community. Together, we can make a significant impact and ensure the well-being of our employees.
