Ventura County Public Works Agency is continuing to improve the safety in our communities by providing maintained roads, clear water channels, and clean drinking water. As frontline workers and first responders, we have great potential for injury while we provide these services, which makes it vital to strive to maintain internal safety for our employees.
VCPWA collaborates with every division to ensure safety and leadership at all levels for continuous improvement. Beginning January 2017, we started tracking ‘No Loss Workdays’ at our operations and maintenance facilities, and 2022 marked the first time we held a ceremony to celebrate the year’s recipients. The Public Works Agency Safety program recognizes individuals and work teams who are taking extra steps to promote health and safety and reduce accidents. A special thanks goes out to Cynthia Ibarra, Health & Safety Assistant, and Phil Raba, Health & Safety Manager, who organized the program and brought the awards ceremony to life. It is a credit to everyone involved to achieve these milestones and is further proof of our dedication to excellence.
Drumroll, please… On February 3rd, VCPWA presented awardees with a plaque for display at their worksites and a personal hardhat sticker noting their achievements. The following crews received group plaques based on the year ending December 31, 2021, for their number of years without a lost-time accident:
Take a second to congratulate the individuals below and pat yourselves on the back! We hope you place a new sticker on your hat and a new plaque on the wall in the years to come. Keep up the great work and stay safe.
