2017 Safety Award




Ms. Houston is recognized for her outstanding safety leadership and the resulting positive effect on staff in her division. She is a true leader in the safety arena, working proactively with staff to resolve safety issues. She initiated improvements in preventing falls in the high bay areas of the Fluid Mechanics and Radiation Physics buildings, coordinated an OSHE safety evaluation of the four division machine shops that resulted in 100% implementation of OSHE-identified improvements, and when division staff reported that newly purchased laser safety eyewear did not meet specifications, she managed an effective response involving the division laser safety representative, OSHE, and the eyewear manufacturer in the investigation.
