Each year the Governor’s Industrial Safety & Health Advisory Board (GISHAB) recognizes workers in Washington who saved a life while on the job. The nomination period is now open through June 30 for lifesaving actions that occurred between June 1, 2020 and May 31, 2021.

If you know a workplace hero who went above and beyond in reacting to an emergency and performed “hands-on” aid in saving a life, we want to know about it! See the Lifesaving Award Guidelines for more details.

Nominations will be reviewed by members of GISHAB in August and award recipients will be notified of their recognition in late August. We plan to honor recipients during  during our virtual 70th Annual Governor’s Safety & Health Conference September 29-30, 2021.
