It is always a good reminder to make sure that we find time to recognize and show appreciation for our safety leaders. Safety Awards are one way that this can be accomplished.
We have a number of awards you and your organization can apply for. The Best of the Best Safety Committee award is highly sought after and the competition is fierce. The Lundberg award for outstanding safety and health program is a prestigious award based on the seven major elements of an effective occupational safety and health program. Don’t forget the new Safety Champion Award, that was first offered in 2019,and is a great way to recognize outstanding individual achievement on your safety committees. Because we know that the tone of safety always comes from the top, we have the Business Leader who gets it (BLWGI) Award. Unfortunately, we will not offer the Bertak award this year because the minimum requirements for safety committees were lifted last year. At this time, we do expect the important Bertak award to return.
On our awards website, take some time and click on the Frank Bertak and Randall Lundberg History’s to help us remember the efforts of these prominent Southern Oregon foundational safety professionals that made our Southern Oregon Occupational Safety Conference a success over the years.
