PACE Awards Program will reward a safety star with $5,000

Awards-Program 

The PACE Awards Program recognizes the member programs and individuals that exemplify exceptional vision, leadership and creativity in safety activities, such as, but not limited to:

  • Auditing the college campus safety policy
  • Implementing districtwide safety trainings
  • Replacing playground and sports equipment
  • Purchasing a SawStop

PACE Awards give member community colleges, ESDs and districts the chance to receive recognition for their outstanding work. While most educational facilities have existing safety programs, the PACE Awards highlight programs or individuals that exceed baseline expectations and demonstrate devotion to safety.

“Keeping students and staff safe is important every day, and what PACE really wants to celebrate with these Safety Awards are the efforts that go above and beyond the everyday,” said Scott Neufeld, director of claims & risk management. “A Safety Star is someone who identified a potential liability and took steps to overcome that exposure.”

In addition to statewide recognition at PACE Day, one award recipient – The Safety Star – will also receive $5,000 to invest in a safety program, with the oversight of the PACE Risk Management team.

Complete an member program or individual online or printable nomination form(s), and submit to PACE by Jan. 19, 2018.

More details are available on the PACE website.
