SABATTUS — The Sabattus Sanitary District and Water Division has received, for the second time, the Maine Department of Labor’s Safety and Health Award for Public Employers.

The SHAPE award is given to employers who are striving to provide a safe and healthful work place. The award 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 Safety Works consultant.

Receiving the award from the Maine Department of Labor exempts the district from Bureau of Labor standards routine and programmed inspections for four years. However, the district still utilizes the Safety Works Division each year for review and training.
