On August 27, the National Safety Council announced its sixth class of NSC Rising Stars of Safety – a group of future leaders dedicated to making workplaces safer. The 40 honorees have promoted a cycle of continuous improvement within their organizations and created initiatives focused on measurable outcomes of the NSC’s Journey to Safety Excellence.
The City of Ventura’s Laura Pfeifer, of the Public Works Fleet and Facilities Division was among the national honorees. Public Works Director Rick Raives said, “What an honor it is to have our City of Ventura staff included in this national recognition. Through Laura’s safety program coordination, the Public Works department was injury free for more than one year, which is a commendable achievement.” For information about the National Safety Council Rising Stars of Safety program, visit www.nsc.org.
