National Safety Council Labor Division Honors Member for Lifetime Service to Safety 

Itasca, IL –The National Safety Council Labor Division recently presented the Edward Eagan “Soldier of Safety” award to Lonnie Logan at a meeting in Houston, TX. The Edward Eagan “Soldier of Safety” award, first presented in 1999, is a tribute to the ideals and guidance Edward Eagan practiced every day in the promotion of safety and health for the American worker. 

Logan, an electrician for Alcoa Davenport Works, has spent the last 14 years promoting all aspects of safety throughout the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Union Local 1379. He is an active member of his plant’s Joint Safety and Health Committee, Electrical Safety Committee and Lock\Out Tag\Out Committee and is the resident expert on electrical safety and control of hazardous energy. 

“Lonnie Logan has devoted his life’s work to promoting safety just as Edward Eagan did,” said Sloane Grubb, volunteer manager of the National Safety Council. “The Labor Division is proud to present Mr. Logan with this award for outstanding efforts in championing safety.” 

Logan travels across the country teaching electrical safety to IBEW Locals as well as at NSC conferences and meetings. A graduate of the National Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee, Logan also is an Occupational Safety and Health Administration certified 10- and 30-hour instructor. 

Edward Eagan was part of IBEW Local 103 and served as a highly-regarded labor liaison with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Eagan passed away in 1997. The U.S. Secretary of Labor at the time, Alexis M. Herman, wrote in a tribute: “Eddie Eagan’s passing is a monumental loss to OSHA and the Department of Labor, but most of all to the working men and women to whom he devoted his own working life.” 

The National Safety Council (nsc.org) saves lives by preventing injuries and deaths at work, in homes and communities, and on the roads through leadership, research, education and advocacy.
