Employers lauded by BWC for safety records

        Sixteen employers in Wood County have earned recognition from the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation for reaching a year without workplace injuries or illnesses that kept workers away from their jobs for more than a day.

        The employers received BWC’s 100% Award during the Wood County Safety Council’s annual awards ceremony.

        Local employers recognized with the 100% Award include:
