IRWD Recognized as Safety Champion

Sunny Lee and Yvonne Margo of IRWD accept the award from Eric Garcia of ehs International

The IRWD Safety and Security team has been granted the 2017 Safety Champion Award from ehs International, Inc. – this is the first time IRWD has received this honor.

ehs International focuses on environmental and occupational health and safety. The voting panel was composed of safety specialists, including a certified industrial hygienist, a certified safety specialist, and construction health and safety technicians. The teams of professionals chose to recognize three companies out of hundreds of other groups.

“Irvine Ranch Water District’s efforts to keep your workplace safe have not gone unnoticed, and for that you deserve recognition,” said Marjorie Del Toro, president and founder of ehs International.

The award is given out annually and distributed during a site visit.

“We are pleased and honored that ehs International recognized the amount of work that goes into training our staff and helping the district be compliant with Cal OSHA,” IRWD District Security and Safety Manager Emilyn Zuniga said.
