first_imgOkemo Mountain Resort is this year’s recipient of the Vermont Governor’s Award for Outstanding Workplace Safety in the Service Sector. This is the sixth year of the Workplace Safety Award that recognizes Vermont employers for outstanding achievement in workplace safety and health.“Workplace safety is crucial for the health and well-being of our workforce and for the vitality and productivity of our businesses,” Governor Douglas said. “With changes in technology and business practices, employers are constantly challenged to keep their workplace safe. We are pleased to recognize employers who are committed to safety.”Okemo’s management staff works hard to increase safety awareness and decrease workplace accidents by building a strong and sustainable safety culture.  The resort’s philosophy on workplace safety begins with its first corporate Value – Safety.“A safe work environment is healthy and critical for our staff, and we believe it contributes to a healthy environment for our guests,” says Okemo Vice President of Human Resources Crystal Stokarski. “We can also see direct results of our workplace safety awareness translating into employees’ personal safety off the job.  That is a true measure of the effectiveness of culture.”Safety has been a value at Okemo since the1980s.  Resort operators Tim and Diane Mueller have embraced the importance of safety and made it part of their company culture.  Okemo’s impressive safety statistics are the direct result of every employee’s contributions and actions.  It is common to hear staff say, “Safety First!” as they go about their daily work at Okemo.More information about Okemo Mountain Resort may be obtained by calling (802) 228-1600 or by visiting www.okemo.com(link is external), ###last_img
