DLI Seeks Governor's Lifesaving Award Nominations

The Governor's Industrial Safety and Health Advisory board is accepting them until June 30 and will recognize recipients at a September conference in Tacoma, Wash.

People working in Washington state who have saved a life during the past year may be eligible for the 2013 Governor's Lifesaving awards that will be presented during the 62nd Annual Governor's Industrial Safety and Health Conference, Sept. 25-26 at the Greater Tacoma Convention and Trade Center. The conference is sponsored by the Governor's Industrial Safety and Health Advisory Board and the state Department of Labor & Industries.

The board is accepting nominations until June 20. The rules require that the nominee's job be covered by industrial insurance, whether through the state's workers' compensation system or at a self-insured company. The life-saving effort must have taken place between June 1, 2012, and May 31, 2013, but it is not limited to actions in Washington state, and the nominee must have made a hands-on effort to save a life. "For law enforcement officers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians and other similar professions, the lifesaving action cannot be part of their normal job duties but must be above and beyond the call of duty. Past recipients have included rescue personnel who have acted to save a life while off-duty. The board also presents humanitarian awards to people who, despite their best efforts, were unable to save the life of the victim," according to DLI, which honored 21 people with lifesaving and humanitarian awards last year.
