In 2001, the Wisconsin Safety Council established the Wisconsin Safety Hall of Fame to recognize high achievement and encourage progress toward a safer and healthier Wisconsin. It symbolizes the Council’s commitment to safety and health.

An individual is inaugurated into the Wisconsin Safety Hall of Fame annually. The recipient is a chief executive officer (CEO), president, or other high-level operating official of an organization that has distinguished itself over a period of years for outstanding achievements in workplace and off-the-job safety and health, community service, environmental stewardship, and responsible citizenship.

The Wisconsin Safety Hall of Fame is a tribute to professionals whose dedication, leadership and achievements have significantly impacted the safety and well-being of not only their employees, but Wisconsin as a whole, throughout the years.

Purposes of the Wisconsin Safety Hall of Fame:

  • To honor an individual whose appreciation of and concern for humanity, safety and health serves as an inspiration to others.
  • To formally acknowledge the Wisconsin Safety Council’s respect for consistent actions and achievements.
  • To congratulate and thank an outstanding leader whose enlightened efforts on behalf of employees and community maintain society’s commitment to the dignity of all people.
  • To acknowledge an individual’s achievement.

Nomination and Selection Criteria:

To be considered for the Wisconsin Safety Hall of Fame, an organization and its leader should have a superior record in advancing safety and health practices within their organization and industry that is consistent with the stated purposes, objectives, and mission of the Wisconsin Safety Council.

The Wisconsin Safety Council is the state’s leading provider of workplace safety training and programming. Founded in 1923, WSC is a program of WMC and the proud state chapter of the National Safety Council.
