Employee Safety Award Program

In September of 2011 the FZSD Safety Committee implemented a monthly safety award program. It was the hope of the committee to bring awareness to district employees on the importance of safety at work and help reduce injuries. When all of us are diligent in our daily efforts to keep safety a priority, we reduce the risk of injury as well as time away from work. The FZSD Safety Committee is dedicated to keeping all district buildings, all staff members and all district properties safe.

Safety awards are given at all buildings in the district beginning in October and ending in April.  A Grand Prize drawing is done in May each year. All the names of the safety award winners throughout the year are put into the drawing. One name is randomly chosen and that employee wins a two-night stay and a $100 gift card for the Lodge of The Four Seasons. This generous grand prize is paid for by Arthur J. Gallagher who provides the Property and Casualty Insurance for the district.

The Safety Committee is excited to be starting their 5th year of the Safety Award Program.
