The Lifesaving Award is presented to employees in the State of Washington who are covered by industrial insurance, either through the State Fund or a Self-Insured employer and performed a lifesaving action while on duty.
The honorees personally performed urgently required hands-on action in a lifesaving effort. Humanitarian Awards are given when the heroic act didn’t involve hands-on lifesaving effort or when the victim didn’t survive in spite of the lifesaving efforts.
We recognize those recipients at the annual Lifesaving Awards event held during the main Conference.
