Continued Innovation: OH&S 15th Annual New Product of the Year Contestants

Here are the product entrants in the 2023 edition of Occupational Health & Safety’s annual product contest.

At OH&S, our coverage of the safety and health industry keeps employers and workers alike informed about the latest news and developments that directly affects their lives. But in the process, we are also uniquely positioned to witness the industry’s evolution in real time. Our New Product of the Year contest is one of the best opportunities we have to do just that.

For 15 years now, OH&S has been celebrating innovation and ingenuity in the safety and health industry through the New Product of the Year contest. And the turnout for the 2023 edition is truly a testament to how committed industry professionals are to pushing the boundaries of what’s possible and identifying fresh, inventive ways to keep workers safe while on the job. 

The New Product of the Year contest is well into its teen years, and the level of engagement this year prove it’s still very much growing. This year, 30 companies submitted more than 60 entries across such popular categories as EHS Software, Hand Protection, Heat Stress Prevention and Protective Apparel. But which will walk away with trophies for their industry achievements?

As always, the 2023 New Product of the Year winners will be chosen by an independent panel of judges and will be featured in a special section of the November/December issue of OH&S.

Product Showcase

  • The MGC Simple Plus

    The MGC Simple Plus

    The MGC Simple Plus is a simple-to-use, portable multi-gas detector that runs continuously for three years without needing to be recharged or routinely calibrated after its initial charge and calibration during manufacturing. The detector reliably tests a worksite’s atmosphere for hydrogen sulfide, carbon monoxide, oxygen and combustible gases (LEL). Additionally, it is durable enough to withstand the harshest treatment and environments, which is why it has an IP 68 rating. The MGC Simple Plus is also compatible with a variety of accessories, such as Gas Clip Technologies’ new GCT External Pump. Visit gascliptech.com for more information. 3
