Congratulations to the winners of Olympic Steel’s Safety Tagline contest!

 Safety first. Always. And, it starts with me.

After an incredibly difficult time narrowing down 228 creative Safety Tagline submissions from 91 employees across our organization, we’ve identified our winners – and it’s a tie!

Olympic Steel’s New Safety Tagline:

 Safety first. Always. And, it starts with me.

 For employee apparel, we’ll use a slight variation:

Safety first. Always. Ask me!

 There were so many great submissions that we combined a few to create our winners. And, speaking of winners, congratulations to the employees who helped us develop our safety tagline:


  • Dawn Kelley, Integrity Stainless (Streetsboro, OH)  – “Safety first. Always.”
  • Matt Krinke, Olympic Steel (Minneapolis, MN – Coil) – “Safety starts with ME.”
  • Rich Carney, Olympic Steel (Corporate)“Safety matters. Ask me!”

Our winners will split the grand prize and each receive at $150 Amazon gift card.

Our runners up with similar submissions and/or the next highest number of votes from the Executive Selection Committee will each receive a $50 Amazon gift card:

  • Amanda Beschle, Olympic Steel (Milford, CT)“Safety Begins with Me”
  • Bob Dove, Integrity Stainless (Streetsboro, OH) “Safety Culture Starts with Me”
