Nominees for Governors & Employee Safety Awards for 2015

The annual Governor’s Employee Safety Awards (GESA) program is provided again this year to encourage employee safety awareness and to give recognition to individual employees or groups of employees who have made exceptional contributions to safety on the job in State service.  Awards are categorized by Group, Individual, and Departmental.  A single “Excellence in Occupational Safety” award will be presented to an individual who makes an outstanding contribution to safety or health resulting in the prevention of workplace injury or illness and whose primary responsibility is safety or health.

Governor Brown is committed to this safety awards program and he will sign the award certificates that will be presented to the selected employees.

The names of the individuals you wish to have considered for these awards should be submitted to Environmental Health and Safety via the nominee’s line organization, by August 3, 2015 using the nomination forms. Copies of the guidelines and nomination forms are available on the EH&S Web Site at:
