Safety Poster Contest
Since the founding of the IBEW in 1891, one of its primary goals has been to promote safety and healthnot only for the worker but also for the workers family. The IBEW was one of the first unions to have a full-time Safety Department and one of the first to require Local Union Safety Committees in its Constitution. Continuing this proud tradition of being a leader in promoting safety and health, International President Edwin D. Hill and International Secretary-Treasurer Jeremiah J. OConnor are pleased to announce the 2002 Safety Poster Contest.
The winners of the 2002 Safety Poster Contest will be awarded cash prizes as follows:
FIRST PLACE $200
