Thanks to all who participated in VML Insurance Programs’ (VMLIP) first safety photo contest. We asked members to submit their best safety, program, or other safety-related photo in recognition of April as National Safety Month.
The winners are:
Most Innovative: Alexandria Transit Company/DASH
Fourth Place: City of Winchester
“I found this photo in the newspaper many years ago and it is the first photo I use in my safety awareness training … I hide the written words and after we discuss the issues with this scene, I then present that the photo was in the local newspaper and the city doesn’t want to be this type of ‘role model’. Sometimes learning through others, like this situation and in a controlled environment like our training room, I can hit home and set the tone of our safety program very quickly by one picture.” – Steve Corbit, purchasing/risk manager, City of Winchester
Third Place: City of Suffolk
“This picture illustrates Fall Protection training for the City of Suffolk Public Works Department conducted by the Division of Risk Management and Capital Safety Fall Protection Experts. Employees learned the safety features, proper use and how to inspect their harnesses. Also, they learned OSHA requirements for Fall Protection use.” – Brian Parker, risk manager, City of Suffolk
Second Place: Alexandria Transit Company/DASH
First Place: Norfolk Redevelopment and Housing Authority
“Auto Shop Manager Ron Ward presented this photo to grounds staff during a training on towing a trailer. The presentation included trailer parks breakdown, hook-up training, loading and unloading, tie-down procedures, backing, and proper towing procedures.” – Kathy Melton, administrative operations supervisor, Norfolk Redevelopment & Housing Authority
Congratulations to all winners of the photo contest. Winners will receive a $20 gift card.
We hope this contest inspires your safety training program!
