The awards will be presented March 6, 2013, as part of the Oregon Governor’s Occupational Safety and Health Conference in Portland.

Nominations are being accepted for the Oregon GOSH Awards, which will honor organizations and individuals who make extraordinary contributions to workplace safety and health.
