Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens accepted awards this week from the Greater Hamilton Safety Council recognizing the BCEO's outstanding workplace safety.

Specifically, the 2008 Officer's Award: Best Industrial Safety Record was presented by the Safety Council to the Butler County Engineer's Office for going 205,588 man-hours worked without a lost time accident.

The BCEO was also recognized by the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation with the 100 Percent Achievement Award for Outstanding Safety Performance.

These awards are particularly noteworthy considering the hazardous nature of bridge and roadway work. BCEO Highway Service Workers and snow plow drivers encounter conditions that range from high heat and heavy construction equipment to sub-zero temperatures and treacherous roads.

"Both of these awards represent our employees' dedication to on-the-job safety," said Wilkens. "We're extremely proud of their accomplishments and the safety training programs that we have in place at the Engineer's Office. Our team of professionals know and understand how critical work place safety is. The dual benefit of keeping our employees safe and reducing lost work time is indeed a win-win for us and for the taxpayers."
