The Orrville Area Safety Council's mission is to be an effective safety resource for the employers. We accomplish this mission by providing the latest in safety and health information through experienced professionals conducting interactive workshops and drawing on the experiences and best management practices of member employers.
Safety Always Matters
Orrville Area Safety Council provides a forum to examine and resolve occupational safety and health issues. We strive to bring you the experts who can provide the information to make your workplace safe.
Monthly meetings and interactive workshops provide an opportunity to learn from the experts about health and safety issues facing today's businesses. In addition, the Council is affiliated with the Bureau of Worker's Compensation (BWC) Division of Safety and Hygiene (DSH), and has access to their safety resources.
We invite you to explore the Orrville Area Safety Council. Membership is free and is open to all companies, corporations, and individual employers.
Take advantage of this opportunity to network with and learn from experienced safety professionals.
Safety Council Attendance
Guidelines for meeting the credit
A representative must attend 10 out of 12 meetings during the calendar year which runs from July 1st through June 30th;
The attendance of any employer representative qualifies to meet the attendance requirement.
A person can represent only one policy number with their attendance at a safety council meeting or external training event;
A CEO / Executive Level Director must attend one safety council meeting per year;
The CEO credit must be fulfilled at a meeting of the safety council in which the employer is enrolled.
Where a CEO represents multiple policy numbers, his/her attendance at one meeting will fulfill the CEO requirement for all policies, but attendance credit will be given to only one policy number.
The employer must submit two Semi-Annual Reports per year.
No matter the duration of the meeting, training or special event, attendance equals one meeting credit. Multiple representatives at one meeting, training or special event equals one meeting credit.
Attendance of a qualified external training will count for a monthly meeting attendance. It is the employer’s responsibility to submit an official certificate of attendance for external training credit to the safety council in which they are enrolled by June 30th of the current enrolled year.
External training may include:
Ohio Safety Congress – maximum of one meeting credit per event, no matter the number of sessions or days attended;
Division of Safety & Hygiene safety courses – maximum of one meeting credit per course;
Industry-specific safety training – maximum of one meeting credit per scheduled training with at least one hour of safety curriculum;
Seminar, conference or special event sponsored by another safety council (not safety council monthly meetings);
Safety training conducted at the employer’s workplace, online courses, webinars or required Drug-Free Safety Program training does not qualify for the safety council rebate program credit.
