Who is your Everyday Hero?

The AHSA wants to recognize and reward excellence in workplace health & safety. The “Everyday Hero Award” will be presented to individuals who are nominated by their peers under the following categories.

Health & Safety Innovator

We want to recognize your forward thinkers. Do you have someone on staff who has suggested or implemented a really great idea that improves the environment in which you work? Tell us their story!

Health & Safety Leader

Passion. Commitment. Conviction. Call it what you want. Tell us about that person who has it. Maybe they always ensure PPE is worn.  Maybe they can be counted on to hold a co-worker’s ladder.  This hero goes that extra step to make their workplace just a little safer for everyone, and they deserve recognition for it!

Health & Safety Mentor

There is a special breed of Everyday Hero who actively seeks out health & safety knowledge and wants to share it! They are your go-to person when you want to know what training is required, how to get it, and why it is important. Tell us how their passion for safety has inspired you, so that we can recognize them!


If you would like to nominate one of your peers, send an email to with the subject line, "Everyday Hero Nomination." Be sure to include the category for which you are submitting your nomination, and a brief story to tell us why you believe this individual should be recognized.
