Glen Kailus (FAC) receives July 2017 Gold Spot Award
Glen Kailus (FAC) received a Gold Spot Award in July 2017 for leading a team that identified a hazard and quickly took actions to have it remedied.
Kailus and his building maintenance staff responded to an after-hours call about a water leak in Building 431. They quickly identified the source of the leak as a broken water main and secured it. Kailus then helped supervise the cleanup.
Thanks to Kailus’s leadership and timely response, a number of potential hazards were averted and normal operations were able to resume.
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 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.
Additional information about the Spot Award program is available on Inside Argonne.
