Essay/Photo/Video Contest Celebrating Safe+Sound Week

Monday, August 05, 2019

Okay, all you wannabe authors, photographers and videographers, now is your chance for fame and glory. In recognition of OSHA’s Safe+Sound Week (August 12-16), we are holding our first ever Roco Rescue "Safety Essay/Photo/Video Contest!"  

Because safety is the foundation of all Roco programs, we wanted to show our support for Safe+Sound Week, which helps raise awareness and understanding of the value of safety and health programs in the workplace.  Graphics_Participant_Badge_Transparent

How Does The Contest Work? 

The topic is: What have you learned about safety on the job, and how has it affected you personally? Submit an original piece of writing, a photograph with a descriptive/explanatory caption, or a video on this topic, along with your name and contact info to pfurr@rocorescue.com by midnight EDT on August 16. Your entry will be reviewed by a panel of esteemed judges, and the winner will be awarded a Roco Pocket Guide. The winner will be notified on Friday, August 23.
