The District received a renewal of the SAFETY and HEALTH AWARD for PUBLIC EMPLOYEES (SHAPE) from the Maine Department of Labor. The current certification is valid until November 2020.
This award recognizes public-sector employers who maintain an exemplary safety and health management system for their employees. Acceptance into SHAPE is an achievement that distinguishes an organization as a model for workplace safety and health. Upon receiving SHAPE recognition the District’s worksites are exempt from programmed inspections for the period the SHAPE certificate is in effect.
The District was only the 5th water district of over 160 districts in the state to receive this award.
