Burkhammer thanked his mentors as he accepted his award and commented on his view of the future of the profession. "I am deeply honored and humbled to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award from BCSP in recognition of my 50-plus years of working in the environmental, safety, and health field. I have spent a career speaking out on various issues and have learned that the voice of one person has a much greater impact when it is the voice of a group," he said.
