Safety Award

The Northwestern Water and Sewer District has been recognized by the Safety Council of Northwest Ohio for accumulating 587,618 hours without a lost-time injury.

“This is great recognition for our organization, our safety efforts, our employees, and their families” President Jerry Greiner said. “For many years our field supervisors, Dan Wickard and Simon Gundy, have chaired our Safety Committee, leading them with training and building awareness of the risks of this profession”, he continued.

“Of the 32 potential hazards identified by the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation, our field employees come in contact with 25 of them on a daily basis. Accumulating this many hours with approximately 40 field employees is the equivalent of over 6 years without a lost-time injury. This is a reflection of our worker’s training and dedication to safety,” Simon Gundy, Assistant Superintendent and Safety Manager said.

The Safety Council of Northwest Ohio recognized Northwest Ohio employers last week at their 60th Annual Industrial Awards Banquet.
