NIH Record - National Institutes of Health

7th Annual ‘In Focus! Safe Workplaces for All’ Photo Contest

Whether photography is your passion, hobby or just something you occasionally dabble in, the Office of Research Services, Division of Occupational Health and Safety (DOHS) invites you to be part of building and sustaining a positive safety culture at NIH through photography. You can contribute to the agency’s safety effort by capturing or creating up to three images depicting safe workplaces or activities—e.g., laboratory workers using personal protective equipment, crossing guards on busy streets, construction workers using safety gear—and sharing them with ORS. 

Your photos will be circulated within the NIH community through DOHS safety publications, pamphlets and posters. 

First, second and third place photographs will be framed and prominently displayed outside the ORS director’s office in Bldg. 31, then go on permanent display in the DOHS conference room in Bldg. 13. Winners will receive recognition and a framed certificate from NIH leadership. 

The 2017 submission period is June 28 through Dec. 31. To learn more about the contest, official rules and the submission and selection process, visit
