Heroes and heroines sought for saving a life
TUMWATER - If you know a Washington worker whose quick thinking and fast
actions saved a life, the Governor's Industrial Safety and Health Advisory
Board would like to hear from you. Nominations for the Governor's annual
lifesaving awards currently are being accepted.
All Washington workers covered by the workers' compensation system or a
self-insured employer are eligible for the lifesaving nomination. The heroic
act must have taken place between July 1, 2005, and June 30, 2006, any day
or time, anywhere in the world.
The hero or heroine must have performed "hands-on" aid in saving a life. For
law enforcement officers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians and
other emergency aid professionals, the lifesaving action must be "above and
beyond the line of duty."
Award recipients will be featured guests at the 55th Annual Governor's
Industrial Safety and Health Conference at the Spokane Convention Center.
The Sept. 27-28 conference is co-sponsored by the Governor's Industrial
Safety and Health Advisory Board and the Department of Labor and Industries.
For a lifesaving nomination form and additional information, contact Barbara
Saunders, Lifesaving Award Coordinator, at 360-902-5442 or
foib235 at LNI.wa.gov. The form is also available online at
www.LNI.wa.gov/Safety/TrainTools/GovConf. Deadline for submitting
applications is Aug. 1.
For more information about the conference, call toll-free 1-888-451-2004.
