NSC Marion Martin Recognition Award

The NSC Women's Caucus presents the Marion Martin Recognition Award to one woman annually who demonstrates leadership and has a proven track record in safety.

Ms. Martin served as secretary of labor and industry in Maine from 1947 to 1962. During her tenure, legislation involving equal pay, industrial safety, child labor and collective bargaining was passed.
