The National Safety Council (NSC) President/CEO Deborah Hersman presented PSA Insurance & Financial Services (PSA) Senior Safety Consultant Steve Pomponi with the Distinguished Service to Safety Award at the Sept. 25 Opening Session of the NSC Congress & Expo in Indianapolis.
First presented in 1942 to recognize individuals and companies who helped reduce occupational injuries during World War II, the Distinguished Service to Safety Award recognizes outstanding service and contributions to the field of safety. It is one of the most prestigious awards given to individuals by the National Safety Council.
Pomponi was one of just five people in the country recognized with this award. As a top-performing safety professional with PSA, he employs a five-step proven approach to proactively address risks and help control costs.
Over the course of his 27-year career, Pomponi has reduced losses, solved stubborn injury trends and prevented injuries for more than 1,000 companies. He has provided safety training to at least 10,000 front-line employees and 2,500 managers.
