In addition to a digital badge to showcase their achievement, each winner will receive many other benefits. These include editorial coverage and special advertising rates in the April/May 2024 print issue of OH&S as well as the Industrial Hygiene Quarterly eNewsletter, recognition in OH&S’ marketing and promotions, inclusion in the special winners’ section on ohsonline.com and the option to include the winning product logo on a discounted OH&S print and digital ad.

A company may submit more than one product, though companies that enter the same product into multiple categories will be charged the first product rate for the first category entry and the discounted second category rate for additional category entries. Submitted products cannot be previous Industrial Hygiene Awards winners in the same category. However, updated versions of past winners are still eligible, and winning products can be entered into different categories.

A panel of judges selected from the health and safety industry by the OH&S editorial staff will review the submitted materials and determine the winners of each category. Awards will be given at the discretion of the judges, who have the sole right to determine eligibility. Incomplete or incorrect entries will be rejected, and all decisions are final. To ensure fairness, judge names will remain confidential. The deadline to submit entries is Friday, February 23, 2024.
