Share your photo(s) with the NIH community and show your perspective of workplace safety and health in any way you choose! The Office of Research Services (ORS), Division of Occupational Health and Safety (DOHS) is holding the 2nd Annual "In Focus! Safe Workplaces for All" photo contest.
Whether photography is your passion, your hobby or just an occasional pastime, you are invited to participate and capture an image displaying safe workplaces or activities, e.g., the repair of earthquake damage to the Washington Monument, laboratory workers using personal protective equipment, crossing guards on busy streets, etc.
The goals are to: help reduce personal injuries and illnesses; educate and underscore the importance of safety; foster innovation to create shared solutions; and promote community involvement by displaying your talent, imagination and creativity to raise awareness of workplace safety and health.
Be part of building a positive safety culture and get involved by sending in your best shots!
First, second and third place photographs will be framed and prominently displayed throughout NIH. The three winners will receive a framed certificate from NIH leadership. The winning photos will also be featured on the ORS/DOHS website.
The submission period remains open until Sunday, September 30. To learn more about the contest, rules, panel of judges, selection process and to submit your photo visit: http://www.ors.od.nih.gov/sr/dohs/HealthAndSafety/infocus.
