The Florida Chapter’s Heather Earl, for securing close to 20 local, city, county, and state NAOSH proclamations for NAOSH 2010 and sponsoring more than 100 poster contest entries.
The National Capital Chapter’s Mary Winkler, CSP, of the greater Washington, D.C. area, for spearheading the first-ever NAOSH kick-off event at the Smithsonian Institution in D.C. At the event on May 3, some 100 kids and ASSE members celebrate NAOSH Week and honored poster contest winners.

South Carolina Chapter President Laura Comstock, for rallying the chapter to raise funds to send an ASSE member and family to D.C. for the NAOSH kick-off event. The member’s child was one of the 2010 ASSE “Safety-on-the-Job” poster contest winners. According to ASSE, the family, which was going through a rough financial time, was extremely pleased.
Michael Wolf, a Chesapeake Chapter officer, for rallying the chapter to provide snacks, transportation, and more for the ASSE members and families attending the NAOSH kick-off events in D.C.
