In recognition of its commitment to employee safety and creating a safe work environment, the Village of Warwick was presented with the 2023 G. Jeffrey Haber Leadership Award. The award was presented as a testament to the efforts the village has made to minimize workplace injuries and its commitment to the health and well-being of its employees.
The award was announced to more than 300 city and village officials from across the state who were in attendance at the Annual Meeting and Training School of the New York State Conference of Mayors and Municipal Officials (NYCOM). The award was accepted by Village of Warwick Mayor, Michael Newhard.
“The village’s initiatives to create a safe work environment for its employees, through improvements to its facilities, motor vehicle safety training, and its active safety committee, have yielded results. Its commitment to safety has minimized the amount of time its employees lose due to workplace injury and is truly an example for all of our members.”Michael Kenneally, Comp Alliance Executive Director
