Berger opened her visit by presenting Division Newport with the Chief of Naval Operations Award for Safety Ashore in the large, non-industrial category — the second consecutive win for the warfare center.
“I’m honored to have the opportunity to be here to present the CNO Award for Safety,” Berger said. “This award shows not only are you fulfilling the mission, but you are also doing so in a safe manner. Thank you for setting a good example and continuing to set the standard.”
The award, for fiscal year 2021, which runs Oct. 1 through Sept. 30, recognizes the overall quality of the many innovative programs managed by Division Newport's Safety and Occupational Health Branch, including compliance to safety and health standards and proactive mishap prevention efforts.
Infrastructure Division head Dennis Tierney, accepted the award on behalf of the team, which includes Camie Graley, Kenneth Hupf, Joseph Johnson, nurse Deborah Jones, John Mackun, Augustine Razo, Elizabeth Servant, Cody Thomas and Warren VanVelzer; and retired employees Carol Bernier, branch head, Sue Clarke and Mike Kalwak.
