The Occupational Safety & Health Limerick Contest is sponsored by the Healthier Workforce Center of the Midwest in association with the Blarney Canning Company, Widget Manufacturing & Kelly Webworks. The Healthier Workforce Center of the Midwest is supported by a grant from CDC/NIOSH. However, much like the IMF (i.e., Mission: Impossible), the Secretary will disavows any knowledge of your actions. [Not sure which secretary — probably all of them.]

How to enter:

  • Write a humorous limerick on a topic related to occupational health and safety.
  • A limerick is a humorous verse of five lines, in which the first, second and fifth lines rhyme with each other, and the third and fourth lines, which are shorter, form a rhymed couplet.
  • Healthier Workforce Center members, their families and clever plants are not eligible for the prize.
  • Members of private and governmental organization that restrict or limit gifting are especially encouraged to participate as the prize is fairly worthless. (okay, it’s totally worthless)
  • Limericks must be submitted to Limericks@HealthierWorkforceCenter.org by 5 pm COB Feb 29, 2020.
  • General contest rules are available here.
