OH&S Announces Winners of 14th Annual New Product of the Year Contest

OH&S is pleased to honor the winning companies in this year’s New Product of the Year awards.

In the last few years, manufacturers and companies in many industries had to adapt to changes, some rather quickly. Though these past years have been difficult, we’ve seen a lot of safety companies determined to make the best products possible. Their resilience and dedication to workers’ health and safety may mean a few more employees can safely get back home at the end of the day.

We are pleased to announce the 26 companies that won the 14th annual New Product of the Year contest, including Andax Industries, Guardhat, Honeywell, Mechanix Wear, and MSA Safety, who were recognized in more than one category.

This year’s contest attracted entries in 31 award categories, with an independent panel of highly qualified judges choosing the winners.

“The world is entering into the new phase of the pandemic, one where supply chain shortages and economic challenges threaten innovation. However, it appears these hurdles are not changing the way the safety industry continues to show up with new products and solutions that keep employees safe,” OH&S editor Sydny Shepard said. “Each year, the New Product of the Year award program shines a light on the future of the industry, and after seeing the winners of this year’s contest, it’s easy to say that the future is a bright one indeed.”

In addition to being featured in the Occupational Health & Safety magazine, these winners are also featured on OH&S’ industry-leading website, ohsonline.com. Below is a list of all of our Industrial Hygiene Award entrants followed by the winners in their respective categories.
