Who We Are...
Ohio Safety Council is organized and managed through the Portsmouth
Area Chamber of Commerce. We have over 80 members who are keeping
their workforce safe through education AND they are saving money
on their workers' comp premiums by participating.
safety council has the same goal - to increase safety awareness.
But developing and maintaining a safe workplace is no easy task.
That is why it must be a combined effort of local businesses and
The Ohio Bureau
of Workers' Compensation Division of Safety & Hygiene sponsors
83 safety councils, across the state, organized through chambers
of commerce, trade and manufacturing associations, American Red
Cross chapters or other local safety-minded organizations. These
safety councils provide their local communities with quality programs
addressing occupational safety and health, workers' compensation
and risk management education and information. They inform participants
about new techniques, products and services, and provide a thorough
knowledge of these services.
