Speaking Up About Safety Leads

to Recognition

Commonly known as a quiet maintenance worker, Steve Clemons, is anything but when it comes to speaking up about safety in his building. His constant safety reminders, identifying potential hazards and concern for his coworkers’ environment has earned him safety recognition for May.

Clemons works in the Bellefontaine maintenance building and was nominated for the Safety Employee of the Month recognition by his supervisor, Anthony Carusa.

At the beginning of his workday, Clemons provides his safety input when planning the crews' day of operations during risk base assessments.  He is usually the first to recognize potential workplace hazards and report them.

Clemons has built rapport with the mechanics because of his passion to keep the fleet equipment safe and running smoothly. He makes sure his co-workers understand how to properly clean and maintain the sweeper after each use and dedicates time each day for post maintenance.

“Steve makes it clear that keeping himself and his co-workers safe is his main priority. His passion for safety shows through his work ethic and he is truly deserving of this recognition,” said Carusa.

In addition to the recognition, Clemons will receive a safety PPE bag, two hours of paid time off and a Safety Employee of the Month certificate.
