Aurora receives honors
The City of Aurora was informed Sept. 25 that it had won the 2018 League of Oregon Cities and City-County Insurance Services Annual Safety Award contest.
"Your safety award represents a successful program with few or no days lost to on-the-job injuries," CIS Executive Director Lynn McNamara said in an email to city officials on Tuesday, Sept. 11. "Any city that becomes a safety award medalist can be proud, as this represents recognition for having focused on a safe workplace. We're very pleased to recognize your hard work, which has led to your excellent results!"
The award was presented during the recent League of Oregon Cities Conference on Sept. 28 at the Hilton in Eugene.
"I'm pleased to see that the efforts of city staff to create a safe work environment have paid off and are being recognized," City Recorder W. Scott Jorgensen said. "We will continue striving to ensure that our employees stay happy and healthy so they can provide the highest level of service to the citizens of Aurora."
City staff formed a Safety Committee earlier this year to address any potential workplace hazards that may arise. That committee will hold quarterly meetings in an attempt to maintain the city's award-winning safety record.
