[GRANTS PASS, OR] – ECS and safety manager, Grover Kuhs, were recently honored at the annual Southern Oregon Safety and Health Conference on October 18. ECS garnered three awards, while Kuhs was honored with the Safety Professional of the Year.

Among the honors received by ECS: the Safety Committee Recognition Award, which the company has won every year since 2010, the Honorable Distinction for the Safety Committee Award, meaning ECS has been rated within the top two for the outstanding job its Safety Committee is doing, and the award for Outstanding Safety and Health award for a large facility for the second time in five years. In the past 10 years, no company has won the Outstanding Safety and Health award twice.

"In the 10 years I have been attending the conference, this is the first time that one company has achieved these goals," Kuhs said. "This goes to show that our safety program is among the top in the Southern Oregon Region  in all areas."

The winners of these awards was determined by OSHA, SAIF and other facilities though out Southern Oregon.

On winning the Safety Professional of the year, Kuhs says "this particular award would not have been possible without the help and support of all (of ECS' employees)."
