BME Research Associate and Operations Manager Dr. Susan Bernacki recently received an Environmental Health and Safety Award by NCSU’s Occupational Health & Safety Council. Susan received one of their six department level safety awards for her exceptional and consistent attention to safety at NC State.
Courtesy of Eastman Chemical Company and the University, this award is accompanied by $500 funding to use as they see fit in their department for a purpose beneficial to safety. Bernacki is in the process of asking department members for “proposals” to use this money. “I would be looking for things that addressed a broad safety issue, but if there is a critical issue in a lab or classroom that could also be considered,” Susan says. Many congratulations on this achievement Susan, thank you for your commitment to safety requirements in BME!
