Rosemary Williams Awarded Safety Hero Prize

Rosemary Williams — an administrative assistant in the Materials Sciences Division— is a recent recipient of Berkeley Lab’s quarterly Safety Hero $50 raffle prize. Williams was recognized for her efforts to eliminate a trip hazard in her building. She noticed that a stepladder in her group’s small kitchen area kept tipping over whenever someone opened the refrigerator, so she moved it out of the kitchen area to prevent an injury. Williams says she plans to use her prize money to replenish her stock of essential oils so that she can make blends of massage oils, cold remedies, and body butters for Christmas presents.

The Safety Hero Prize draws from Berkeley Lab’s Hero Card program, which acknowledges the small but meaningful contributions made by Lab employees to incorporate safety into their day-to-day work.
