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. Past winners have included Kraft Foods, Reese Electric, Snyder Roofing, Union Pacific Railroad/Hinkle Locomotive, Comcast, and Duckwall-Pooley Fruit Company.

"It really validated the effort of employees who keep Duckwall-Pooley a safe place to work," said Kathy Nishimoto, vice president of the fruit-packing company.
