Platinum Level!

To all Northern Ohio Chapter members, please note the recognition award that the Northern Ohio Chapter received for Platinum Level

This is the 3rd year in a row that we have accomplished this level!

This is a well deserved recognition for our leadership team over those three years and the years to come.  This award recognizes our Chapter, but it is the members who find educational meeting venues, those who submit articles to the Professional Safety Journal, arrange and co-sponsor events with other chapters and the Ohio BWC as were are doing September 28th, and those who are able to attend joint safety council meetings, and volunteer to represent our chapter at different safety day events.  A job well done by all of the members who helped contribute for us to make Platinum Level.

Unrolling some Scotch tape.

Gates wants them to find a photo of someone or something they love and to tape that picture inside the front of their hard hat.

“It could be a spouse, child, grandchild, pet, motorcycle, boat, vacation spot or winning lottery ticket – whatever’s important to you,” says Gates. “Every day, when you put on your hard hat, that picture goes in front of your eyes.

“It’s a constant reminder of why you want to work safe.”
