At the Town of Vail, safety comes first! In recognition of the town’s emphasis on a safe work and home environment, the employee Safety Committee has been recognized with the coveted 2014 Safety Champion Award, presented by the Colorado Intergovernmental Risk Sharing Agency (CIRSA). The town has received this award eight times for its positive safety practices across the organization.
Recent accomplishments have included increasing the number of AEDs (automated external defibrillators) in public buildings and around town, improved lighting in the police garage and a successful and safe delivery of municipal services during the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships.
What’s more, Charlie Turnbull, street superintendent, is the recipient of the 2014 Safety Manager of the Year. Turnbull was nominated by co-workers who commended his dedication to safety throughout his 38 year career with the town. Turnbull and members of the Safety Committee were recognized earlier this month by the Town Council.
Congratulations to Turnbull and the other Safety Committee members: Lori Aker, Paul Cada, Ernie Chavez II, Mark Hoblitzell, Rusty Jacobs, Nick Kettinger, John King, Sean Koenig, Sally Lorton, Albert Maes, Krista Miller, Keven Reijonen, Joyce Rihanek, Todd Scholl and Jordan Winters.
