Safety Recognition Award

EHS administers the Safety Recognition Award as part of the Human Resources and Payroll Recognition Program. This award is given to a person or group of employees (department, facilities shop, laboratory, etc.) to recognize those who have made a significant contribution to improving health and safety on campus. Any employee or group of employees may be nominated by a colleague, supervisor, customer or student. The management team within the Environmental Health and Safety Office will serve as the awarding committee. Nominations will be accepted annually prior to the Human Resources Awards Ceremony held in the fall each year. The monetary award will be divided between multiple awardees.

The committee will be looking for a description of how the nominee(s) has made a significant contribution to improving health and safety on campus. Significant contributions may be defined as actions taken to prevent an injury or illness from occurring, outstanding response and cooperation given to resolve unsafe conditions, consistent and proactive demonstration of efforts in support of health and safety considerations, or other work that promotes health and safety on campus.

Nominations should be submitted on the Safety Recognition Award Form and must be submitted to safety@gmu.edu no later than October 1st for the Fall Human Resources Award Ceremony.
