It’s official! The DEW SHARP Committee awarded the 2009 Safety Awards late in December. The winners are as follows:
2009 Safety Employee of the Year – Rick Davis
Rick is completing his 4th year as a carpenter and his 1st year as a SHARP Committee member. Last year he was a runner-up. He has distinguished himself with his unrelenting pursuit of safety perfection on our jobsites. Not only does he observe and correct problems, but he spends time explaining the consequences of unsafe activity and how to correct it. Rick is a first rate safety advocate and a tremendous asset to our program.
2009 Safety Superintendent of the Year – Dave Stone
No, this is not a misprint. Dave prevailed in a very close vote to repeat as our Safety Superintendent of the Year. That’s quite an honor and a huge measure of respect that fellow employees have for him. Dave has been with DEW for 7 1/2 years and is currently completing work at the Congregational Church in Burlington.
2009 Safety Merit Award – Bob Rose
The Safety Merit Award was designed to recognize people and organizations that do not fit in our regular award categories. This year, Bob Rose, a superintendent with Pike Company, assigned to the Jeffords Hall project at UVM is our winner. Bob was nominated by four DEW employees who are working with him at Jeffords. This award is especially timely as the Jeffords project is Bob’s last before retirement. Bob lives in Herkimer, NY with his wife.
Congratulations to all the winners. Thanks Doug Robie for providing the information!
