L&I Lifesaving Award Nominations Open

All workers who are covered by the state workers' compensation system or a self-insured employer are eligible to be nominated. The nominee must have performed "hands-on" aid in saving a life.

The Washington State Department of Labor & Industries (L&I) is now accepting nominations for the 2016 Governor's Lifesaving Awards. The awards, sponsored by the Governor's Industrial Safety and Health Advisory Board, are presented to workers in Washington who saved someone's life during the past 12 months. The heroic act must have occurred during work hours and taken place between June 1, 2015 and May 31, 2016, and the deadline for nominations is June 30.

All workers who are covered by the state workers' compensation system or a self-insured employer are eligible to be nominated. The nominee must have performed "hands-on" aid in saving a life. For law enforcement officers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians and other similar professions, the lifesaving action cannot be part of their normal job responsibilities; the lifesaving act must have been above and beyond the call of duty, according to L&I's announcement.

Past winners have received the award for actions such as performing the Heimlich maneuver and rescuing a family lost in the wilderness.

The board also presents humanitarian awards to people who, despite their best efforts, were unable to save the life of a victim. In 2015, the board recognized 32 people with lifesaving and humanitarian awards.

Nomination forms are available at www.wagovconf.org. For more information or questions, call 888-451-2004 or email info@wagovconf.org.

Award recipients will be featured guests at the Governor's Industrial Safety and Health Conference on Sept. 29 at the Spokane Convention Center.
