STATEWIDE, Maine — Commissioner of Labor Jeanne Paquette announced that five municipal departments in Maine have earned the Safety and Health Award for Public Employers, or SHAPE. This certification recognizes public-sector organizations that voluntary undertake a rigorous safety achievement program for their workers.
The five departments are the Harrington Fire Department, Kittery Water District, Durham Fire Department, Houlton Water Company, and Waldoboro Fire Department.
The SHAPE award is given only to exemplary public-sector employers after a thorough review and inspection of the employer’s safety and health policies and procedures by a SafetyWorks! consultant.
