A few months back, Bill Singh, senior recruiter in Berkeley Lab's Human Resources, spotted slip hazards on a walkway.“Leaf-blowers had blown foliage onto the hilly stairway leading from Building 90 to Building 55,” he says. This made for a slippery situation, so Bill took action and cleared the branches off the walkway so that others could walk safely. Robert Rodriguez, a fellow senior recruiter in at the Lab, happened to see Bill’s efforts to prevent a slip-and-fall injury, and promptly handed over a Hero Card.
Hero Cards are a way for Berkeley Lab workers to thank one another for using safety common sense, and for looking out for fellow employees, as part of our Safety Culture. Our core value of “uncompromising safety” has resulted in safety-performance improvements over the years. In order to continuously improve our safety performance we are building on this solid foundation and striving to achieve best in class. To do that, we must examine, understand and where necessary adjust our attitudes, beliefs, perceptions and values which comprise our Safety Culture.
