Central Florida Chapter Soliciting Safety Professional of the Year (SPY) Award Nominations
The Edgar Monsanto Queeny Safety Professional of the Year Award is awarded annually to an ASSP member who demonstrates outstanding achievement in the occupational safety and health (OSH) field while also advancing the OSH profession overall. The award is named for Edgar Monsanto Queeny, who exhibited unwavering commitment to workplace safety after a tragic industrial explosion in the late 1940s destroyed Monsanto’s Texas City plant, killing 512 people, including 145 employees. The tragedy moved him to place a greater emphasis on safety in the company’s operations. To this day, the firm’s safety record reflects his deep personal commitment to protecting workers. Through this award, Monsanto Company proudly supports our members efforts to create safe work environments that will lead to a safer, stronger future. There are Chapter, Regional, and a Society-level SPY awards. If you are interested in nominating a peer or yourself for this award, please contact Awards and Honors Chair Heather Earl at email@example.com for assistance. Chapter SPY applications are due November 1, 2019.
