The University Health & Safety Committee desires to recognize OSU members who are taking extra steps to promote health and safety, and to reduce accidents, incidents, and injuries to employees, students or visitors. The new Safety Recognition Program provides a medium to recognize faculty, staff and student employees for their positive behaviors and actions. Examples might include actions, programs, safety achievements, or an approach that places safety at its forefront. This could be in the form of the development of safety programs or best practices related to specific hazards in their area; excellence in lab safety; or a noted dedication to proactively promoting health and safety within a department or college.
