SHOW LOW, Ariz. - Cellular One was honored to be presented with the "Leadership in Safety Award" at the first annual Navajo Occupational Safety and Health (NOSHA) Conference held in Albuquerque in June. The award recognizes the leadership and proactive efforts taken by Cellular One "to go above and beyond what is required to provide a safe and hazard-free workplace for its employees on the great Navajo Nation."

Cellular One Safety and Risk Manager Sue Drenth accepted the award on behalf of the company and also presented seven training sessions during the conference on the topics of tower construction safety and hazard communication programs and the changes global harmonization will bring.

"We are delighted and honored to have received NOSHA's top award. We remain committed to not only serving the needs of our customers on the reservation, but also creating jobs and a safe working environment for them," said Cellular One CEO Louise Finnegan.

"I was thrilled to attend and participate in NOSHA's inaugural conference and delighted to accept the Leadership in Safety Award on the company's behalf," said Drenth. "The current team at NOSHA does a fantastic job working diligently to keep the workforce on the Navajo Nation safe."

Cellular One will continue to work with NOSHA to promote a safe working environment on the Navajo Nation. This month, Drenth will help present a training session in Phoenix for NOSHA employees on the topic of global harmonization standards.
