In addition to the monthly workplace safety luncheons the Portage County Safety Council is actively involved in multiple projects that are aimed at benefiting & improving the local community.

  1. Portage County Safety Council Podcast: The Portage County Safety Podcast is a monthly podcast series aimed at helping member companies & local employers improve their safety programs, outcomes, and general understanding of related topics. Every month local safety & health-related professionals share their expertise with listeners.
  2. Portage County Workforce Health & Wellness Coalition: This project is made up of several local agencies, schools, and businesses collaborating in order to promote employer-based health & wellness programs and to improve the overall health of Portage County workers.
  3. Safety Education Fund: Generated through 50/50 drawings at our monthly luncheons, this project provides funding for various safety training opportunities throughout the year, typically offered to employees of member companies at no charge.
  4. Annual Food Drives: We host 1-2 food drives every calendar year that benefits local food banks in order to help feed the hungry in Portage County.
  5. Monthly Hot Food Donations: We donate all leftover catering from our monthly luncheons to the Center of Hope in Ravenna who provides hot meals 5 days a week for up to 100 people.
