Five Honored in Safety Photo Contest
Five NIH’ers—including one who has been honored for each of the 5 years the Office of Research Services’ Division of Occupational Health and Safety has held its In-Focus! Safe Workplaces for All photo contest—were recently recognized for creative images that speak safety to viewers.
In spite of a record number of entries this year, first place was shared by ORF industrial chemist Roger Weidner’s “Hazmat” (below) and “Find the Difference,” (bottom) a collaboration between NCI’s Dr. Amanda Vandeveer and NCI retiree Diane Poole that challenged viewers to detect subtle differences between two similar images.
Taking second place was “Carpenter Shop” by Bryan Kercher, an ORF engineering technician at Rocky Mountain Laboratories in Hamilton, Mont.
Finishing third, and in his fifth year as an honoree, was NCI’s Dr. Dale Lewis, whose image was titled “Laser Microscope.”
ORS director Dr. Alfred Johnson presented the awards recently at the quarterly meeting of the IC safety and health chairpersons’ committee.
