Nominations Sought for 2019 Oregon GOSH Awards

Oregon OSHA is partnering with the Columbia-Willamette Chapter of the American Society of Safety Professionals to sponsor the Oregon Governor's Occupational Safety and Health Conference in March 2019, where the awards will be presented.

Nominations are being accepted for the 2019 Oregon GOSH Awards, which will honor organizations and individuals who make exceptional contributions to workplace safety and health. The awards will be presented March 6, 2019, as part of the Oregon Governor's Occupational Safety and Health (GOSH) Conference, slated for March 4-7.

The conference is the largest of its kind in the Pacific Northwest and one of the largest in the United States; it will be held at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland. The Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Division (Oregon OSHA), a division of the Department of Consumer and Business Services, is partnering with the Columbia-Willamette Chapter of the American Society of Safety Professionals to sponsor the conference.

Oregon OSHA's Sept. 6 announcement said, "Much of the work to build and maintain safe and healthy workplaces happens behind the scenes, with unsung heroes – including individuals and organizations – dedicating themselves to pinpointing and eliminating hazards. Now is the time to shine a spotlight on their extraordinary work to send workers home safe to their families at the end of every work day."

Nominees will compete with like-sized organizations in these categories:

  • Workplace safety program
  • Association
  • Safety committee/team
  • Innovation
  • Safety/health/wellness advocate (individual or team)
  • Labor representative
  • Safety and health professional (industry specific)
