The North Hudson Sewerage Authority, along with its operating partners, CH2MHill and Operations Management International (OMI), has been awarded a Certificate of Merit Award from the New Jersey Industrial Council for the operation of its West New York wastewater treatment plant.
The authority received the award for compiling one year without a loss to injury in their West New York Plant. It is the second award the authority has received this year. The Adams Street plant in Hoboken recently received the Governor’s Award for Safety for a perfect safety record of 120,482 hours spanning 14 years.
The award was presented to authority officials at a dinner recently also attended by officials from the New Jersey Safety Council, the New Jersey State Industrial Safety Committee and the United States Department of Labor/OSHA.
“We are doubly honored to have received safety awards for both our plants and proud of the accomplishments of the personnel who maintain and operate our wastewater treatment plants,” said NHSA Chairman Richard J. Wolff. “Worker safety is an integral part of our operating philosophy and it is satisfying to realize that our consistent schedule of training sessions to both protect our workers and maintain our excellent safety record in both our plants has been recognized on the state level.”
The Hoboken plant of the NHSA recently received the Governor’s Safety Award.
Wolff also praised the work of Stephen Hudock, project safety manager; Gary Fournier, project director, and Michael Arnold, project manager.
The trio also received the praise of the authority Board of Commissioners, which includes Chairman Wolff and Commissioners David Lopez, Libero Marotta, Frank Raia, Joseph Rivera, Michael Schaffer, Harold Schroeder, Patleo Spaccavento and Katia Stack.
