SAN DIEGO – The National Safety Council, America’s leading nonprofit safety advocate, kicked off its 2022 NSC Safety Congress & Expo today by honoring four individuals with the Distinguished Service to Safety Award. As the highest honor given to safety professionals by the Council, the award recognizes individuals’ outstanding contributions to the field of safety. 

Candidates were nominated by both the general public and NSC members, and reviewed by NSC Division Committees. The following individuals were selected for recognition this year:

● Pat Cunningham, health, safety & environmental leader, Cummins Inc.

● Robert McCall, director of safety, Master Builders’ Association of Western Pennsylvania

● Peter Hancock, professor in the department of psychology, Institute for Simulation and Training, University of Central Florida

● Donna M. Siegfried, retired senior director of first aid and emergency preparedness, National Safety Council

“The prestigious Distinguished Service to Safety Awards have been part of NSC tradition for 80 years, honoring the unique, individual efforts made by those who value safety above all else,” said Lorraine Martin, NSC president and CEO. “Whether pioneering safety research or advancing best practices in the workplace, each honoree has helped make our world a safer place.”

The Distinguished Service to Safety Award was first presented in 1942 to recognize individuals and companies who significantly supported U.S. workers during World War II by reducing occupational injuries.
