Baird Holm LLP Receives Award of Honor
With Distinction at National Safety Council Nebraska’s
Annual Safety and Health Summit
For the sixth consecutive year, Baird Holm LLP successfully met the criteria to achieve the National Safety Council Nebraska’s Award of Honor With Distinction. The award will be presented at Nebraska’s Safest Companies Award Luncheon, held in conjunction with the Annual Safety and Health Summit, on Wednesday, May 24, 2017.
Baird Holm’s recognition comes as a result of the firm’s commitment to maintaining a safe work environment for all attorneys, staff and guests. The firm plans regular building evacuation and medical emergency drills and offers on-site AED/CPR certification and first-aid training programs at no cost to all employees.
Throughout the year, attorneys and staff are given opportunities to participate in various health screenings and safety programs. Baird Holm also boasts a robust safety committee, made up of attorneys and staff from each of the floors of the Woodmen Tower, where the firm resides.
“Even in an office environment we know that investing in safety pays dividends,” said Baird Holm partner R.J. (Randy) Stevenson. “Our safety committee continuously refines our safety program and policies. As a result, the firm’s workplace injuries are at an all-time low.”
