Nelson Randolph shows off his Safety Star Award with Grounds & Landscape Services Superintendent Cary Avery and Kim Rhodes, Director of Budget and Planning for CPCR.

ARM employee Nelson Randolph is the winner of the first ever Safety Star award.  This award is bestowed to someone who, based on co-worker nomination, supports a strong safety culture and models the Principles of Safety.  Safety Services works with the winner’s supervisor to coordinate a time to surprise the person with the award.

Nelson is responsible for safety programs for Grounds — primarily pertaining to roads — and his stellar service is also available to other departments on a recharge basis.

Many thanks to Nelson for his commitment to safety!

If you would like to nominate a co-worker for the Safety Star Award, more information will be available soon on the Safety Services website, or you can contact Aimee Pfohl at
