The Minnesota Safety Council awarded Osseo Area Schools a Governor’s Safety Award for Outstanding Achievement in Occupational Safety, which recognizes superior performance in workplace safety and health. This is the seventh consecutive year that the district has received an award for its exceptional safety performance.


Osseo Area Schools is one of 309 employers who will be recognized at the Governor’s Safety Awards luncheon at the Minneapolis Convention Center on May 5. Applicants are judged on several years of injury data as it compares with their industry’s national statistics, and on their progress in implementing a comprehensive workplace safety program.
