September 26, 2019

This month's breakfast meeting was a busy one, with two companies receiving NSCN's Seat Belt Safety Award and one individual earning the Certified Safety & Health Official (CSHO) certificate. 

Congratulations to both Merck Omaha Distribution Center and College of Saint Mary on being awarded NSCN's Seat Belt Safety Award. Both organizations conducted random seat belt checks at their facility and had a usage rate of over 90%. The seat belt check is a simple and FREE process. Interested in showing your dedication to safety without shortcuts by running your own seat belt check? Contact us today to get one set up! 

Additional congratulations are in order as Abbey Cherney, Airlite Plastics, earned her CSHO certificate! This prestigous certificate took many months and many classes to complete. The CSHO program is nationally recognized and focuses on safety and health regulations and interpretations, training requirements, employee safety and involvement, workers rights and responsibilities, employer accountability, program development and implementation.  Earning the CSHO demonstrates Abbey's committment to advancing her safety career - making not only her workplace, but also our community, safer places.
