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 31 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  “FY14 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.
