CITY HONORED FOR INJURY PREVENTION AND SAFETY PERFORMANCE

The Nebraska Safety Council (NSC) Greater Omaha Chapter has recognized the City of Lincoln’s safety program with an Award of Honor With Distinction for Superior Achievement in Injury Prevention and Safety Performance covering the years 1998 to 2007. Representatives from the City’s Risk Management Division received the award at the NSC’s annual conference in Omaha May 17.

The award criteria considered reductions in workplace injuries, the overall effectiveness of safety training programs and injury statistics. All City injury statistics were better than the national averages.

“This is a great honor for City employees who provide essential services in a safe and conscientious manner,” said Bill Kostner, Risk Manager for the City of Lincoln. “This is a real win-win for our employees and ultimately, for our residents.”

The City of Lincoln also received the NSC’s Peak Performance Award in May for its outstanding workplace safety program.
