Mark Rooney receives March 2016 Gold Spot Award
by Diana Anderson
Mark M. Rooney, machining and fabrication foreman, Facilities Management and Services (FMS), received a Gold Spot Award in March 2016 for outstanding safety initiative.
In coordination with other FMS Central Shops and Safety team members, Mark prepared proper safety documentation and oversaw the safe welding and fabrication of a glove box that involved difficult, confined-space work to be done while adhering to the guidelines set forth in FMS safety procedures. The project was completed successfully and safely.
Spot Awards give employees “on-the-spot” recognition for positive safety or quality assurance initiative. The Spot Award program offers three award levels: gold ($100), silver ($50) and bronze ($25).
If you see an employee exhibiting behavior that warrants positive recognition (e.g., safe behavior or process improvements), you can nominate that individual for a Spot Award by submitting a Spot Award (ANL-758).
The form will be routed to the individual’s supervisor and division for approval. Observers may award employees from their own division or from other divisions. The cost of the award is charged to the recipient’s division.
