Safety Council

The South Summit Chamber of Commerce will no longer be sponsoring the monthly Safety Council lunches. 

In this section you will find information in reference to the Barberton-South Summit and Ohio Safety Council for your consideration. A new enrollment form MUST be filled out and returned to our office if you should decide to join the South Summit Safety Council. As a member of the Barberton-South Summit Chamber of Commerce, there is no fee involved to join the safety council. You will also find a link to a semi-annual report so that you may view and become familiar with what a semi-annual report that we ask our safety council members to fill out twice a year. These forms are sent to our safety council once in January and once in June. We fill out the entire top portion for you and all that you would be required to do is fill in the date of the most recent lost time injury or illness, average number of employees, total worked hours and the number of days missed due to lost time injury/illness. By filling out the semi-annual reports, your place of business will qualify for awards and possibly other incentives/discounts offered by the BWC and your Chamber of Commerce.

Our safety council is making a lot of great changes to improve our council and make it as beneficial to our members as possible. As a Safety Council member, you will automatically begin to receive our monthly Safety Council newsletter for you to browse through so you can become more familiar with our program and what we offer to our members. The newsletter will also inform you of all upcoming meetings.

The meetings are currently held at Prime at Anthe's Restaurant located at 4315 Manchester Rd, Akron and at the Harbor Inn at 562 Portage Lakes Dr.  The meetings are rotated between these locations each month; please call the Chamber office for meeting dates and times. You will find more information about the speaker in the newsletter. We hope you will be able to join us for the upcoming meeting.
