The Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Resources Department won a gold award for the second consecutive year. Meanwhile, the Planning Department won a gold award for the 30th consecutive year.

To qualify for an annual safety award, an organization must have had no fatalities during the calendar year at the site or location for which the award was given, and have maintained an incidence rate at least 50 percent below the average for its particular industry group.

There are two award levels distributed—gold and silver. The gold award is based on cases of days away from work, restricted activity or job transfer. The silver award is based only on cases with days away from work. They are recorded when the worker misses at least one full day of work, not including the day of the injury.

Town Human Relations Analyst Kimberly Storey completed the Town’s applications for the awards.
