OH&S Celebrates 14th New Product of the Year Contest

Occupational Health & Safety’s annual product contest brought in more than 60 entries this year.

At OH&S we are happy to provide niche coverage of the safety and health industry and, in doing so, we often have ways of knowing and understanding how the future of the industry may play out. Our New Product of the Year contest is one of the ways we can watch innovative and intelligent solutions and products come to fruition year after year. 

Now, in its 14th year, the New Product of the Year contest has caught the eye of more than 30 companies, each hopeful for a trophy to commemorate their outstanding products and solutions. 

The New Product of the Year 2022 contest brought in over 60 entries in popular categories like Hand Protection, Internet of Things and Wearable Devices, but this was the first time OH&S offered the new product category “PPE for Women,” which saw four entries for products uniquely designed for women. 

The winners of the contest chosen by an independent panel of judges and will be featured in a special section of the November/ December issue of OH&S. You can also find exclusive coverage of our New Product of the Year contest at ohsonline.com/npoy.
