Winners - Safe Workplaces for Everyone photo contest

Aaron Sussell, Cincinatti Ohio 
1st Place Winner of the Public Contest
"This is a great captured moment that tells the story of workplace safety. These men are perfectly covered up in hats to protect themselves from the sun. They are using proper tools and protecting themselves with gloves and foot coverings." 
-- Kathleen Klech, Photography Director, Condé Nast Traveler Magazine and Photo Contest Judge

In celebration of its 40th anniversary, OSHA held the Picture It!: Safe Workplaces for Everyone photo contest. The contest challenged anyone with a passion for photography to capture an image of workplace safety and health and share it with OSHA. In response, OSHA received more than 300 submissions portraying a wide range of industries and activities.

At the same time, OSHA held a second contest challenging OSHA staff to submit their images of workplace safety and health. 

More than 50 submissions were received for this internal contest.

Winners were selected by an expert panel of judges that included Earl Dotter, photojournalist; Carl Fillichio, the Department of Labor’s Senior Advisor for Communications and Public Affairs; Kathleen Klech, photography director for Condé Nast Traveler magazine; and Shawn Moore, the chief photographer for the Department of Labor. OSHA extends its thanks to these judges for their generosity and their critical expertise.
