The Governor’s Industrial Safety and Health Advisory Board invites you to nominate employees within the state of Washington for performing a lifesaving action.
The Lifesaving Award is available to employees in the State of Washington who are covered by industrial insurance, either through the State Fund or a Self-Insured employer. The lifesaving action must have been performed while on duty.
The award is for personally performing urgently required hands-on action in a lifesaving effort. In the case of law enforcement persons, fire fighters, EMTs, healthcare professionals, or other similar type professionals, such actions must not be part of their normal duties, but must be above and beyond the call of duty.
A Humanitarian Award may be 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.
