Each year the Safety Council holds annual awards. These awards are presented as a result of the semi-annual reports that are submitted to the Ohio BWC in January and July. The three separate awards that can be earned include: The Special Award, presented to each company that accumulates at least 500,000 hours and at least six months without a lost-time injury or illness; the Achievement Award, presented to each company that works the entire year without lost time due to injury or illness; and the Group Award, presented to the company with the lowest incident rate in each group. For this award, the groups are divided by manufacturing with less than 100 employees, manufacturing with more than 100 employees; construction, healthcare, service industries, and government.
