2016 NPOY Contest Winners Honored

OH&S congratulated winners of the eighth annual contest during the 2016 National Safety Congress & Expo.

Twenty-two companies, including multiple winners Avery Products Corporation, CBS ArcSafe, Inc., Honeywell, and Ringers Gloves, won top honors in Occupational Health & Safety magazine’s eighth annual New Product of the Year contest this year. Most of the winners were recognized with awards during the 2016 National Safety Congress & Expo, which took place in Anaheim, California, Oct. 17-19.

This year's contest attracted a record number of entries, 84 in all, in 21 award categories, with an independent panel of three highly qualified judges choosing the winners. Many categories were hotly contested, especially the Hand Protection category, in which an unprecedented five products tied. All five of those companies received awards.

The contest's judges were Vince Marchesani, Ph.D., President and CEO of Environmental, Health and Safety International LLC; Chuck Paulausky, CHMM, President of CPSE LLC, a consulting firm specializing in OSHA and EPA compliance and loss control for small to medium-sized businesses; and Linda J. Sherrard, CSP, MS, Safety Consultant II for the Central Prison Healthcare Complex (NCDPS) and former technical editor of Occupational Health & Safety.

To be eligible for the 2016 awards, products must have been introduced to the market between July 5, 2015, and July 4, 2016.
