Our mission is to prevent and mitigate personal injury to employees and economic losses to member businesses and the community that arise from preventable health and safety incidents.
We seek to accomplish our mission by providing a forum to:
1. Increase safety awareness through the examination of current safety & health issues.
2. Encourage members and area businesses to use rules, procedures and practices daily that result in a safe and healthy working environment for all their personnel.
We coordinate monthly programs for our members and the community throughout Sandusky County. Our monthly meetings are advertised through e-mail, the Chamber Newsletter and the local news media. Members are sent an e-mail reminder 2 weeks before each meeting.
Dues & Membership Information
Membership requirements are:
1. Dues paid in full by August 1 of each year. If not paid by Sept. 1, membership will be cancelled. New members who join after Sept. 30 will have their dues pro-rated.
2. Members eligible for a 2% BWC workers comp insurance rebate* must attend at least 10 meetings Membership is by company and not by individual name. This allows the company to send an alternate in case the person who usually goes cannot attend. *Note: Please see attached “FY13 Safety Council Discount Program Eligibility Requirements” document for new guidelines.
Primary Membership dues are $190.00 per year for one person to attend. A $20.00 reduction in Primary Member dues is offered to members of the Chamber of Commerce of Sandusky County. If a company wishes to send more than one person to each meeting, Secondary Memberships are available at an investment of $110.00 per year for each additional membership from the same company. Invoices for dues will be mailed to member companies on July 1 each year.
Meetings are held on the fourth Wednesday of every month, normally during lunch time. The location is usually Elmwood Health Care Center (formerly St. Francis HCC), SR 19, Green Springs. A program about safety is presented at each meeting following a short business meeting. At some meetings, a guest company may be given time for a “Company Spotlight” to educate members about a new product or service that they provide for the safety industry. Time is provided before and after the program to network with other safety representatives.
A typical meeting schedule is as follows:
11:00 A.M. – 11:30 A.M. Registration/Networking/Lunch
11:30 A.M. – 11:45 P.M. Business Meeting
1:45 A.M. – 12:30 P.M. Program
Lunch is included in the cost of membership; if a member brings a guest from their company who is not a member, the guest must pay for their lunch. There is no charge for guests who are prospective members.
