EM Update — August 15, 2023
WEST VALLEY, N.Y. – The EM program at the West Valley Demonstration Project conducted its annual Safety Day to reinforce and highlight the importance of safety through demonstrations, hands-on activities and guest lectures.
The event organizers held demonstrations on electrical safety, heat-stress monitoring, procedural compliance, and three-way communication, and they provided information on nutrition and staying healthy. A “Jeopardy” style game tested employees’ knowledge of safety controls, tools and procedures in a fun, competitive manner. Cheryl Wozniak, safety engineer with CH2M HILL BWXT West Valley, EM’s cleanup contractor at the site, coordinated the event for all employees. She thanked them for making safety their No. 1 priority. “Thank you for all your hard work in helping us to maintain our Voluntary Protection Program Superior Star status,” Wozniak said. “Your involvement and proactive approach to safety continues to promote a safety culture that is continuously improving the work environment and reducing risks. Together, we help each other stay safe and healthy.”
