AUBURN — City Manager Denis D’Auteuil announces that Auburn has earned the Safety and Health Award for Public Employers in recognition of its rigorous safety achievement program.

A program of the Maine Department of Labor, the SHAPE award recognizes public-sector organizations that voluntarily undertake a rigorous safety achievement program for their workers.

The SHAPE award was conceived in 2005 as a way to recognize public-sector employers and employees who are striving to provide a safe and healthful workplace. It is given only to exemplary public-sector employers after a thorough review and inspection of the employer’s safety and health policies and procedures by a SafetyWorks! consultant.

“We are very proud to receive this award,” D’Auteuil said. “Our team works tirelessly to promote a safe workplace, and to get this kind of recognition means a great deal to us. This is an exceptional workplace with a great team of people who strive for excellence. I congratulate my entire team on this achievement.”

Auburn’s workplace safety efforts are spearheaded by Safety Coordinator Raymond Lussier.
