The Tri-County Family Violence Prevention Coalition awarded its partners for promoting workplace safety.
State Sen. Joe Schiavoni, D-Boardman, and a representative from the office of Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine each received a special advocacy award for leadership.
This year’s V.I.P. advocacy awards for safety, well-being and morale went to the Mahoning County Mental Health Board, Windsor House and the Family Recovery Center.
“Workplace violence accounts for 17 percent of fatal occupational injuries across the nation. It’s the third leading cause of fatal injuries in Ohio,” said Dorothy Kane, coalition coordinator.
The Tri-County family violence prevention coalition is in its 12th year.
