We are very proud to announce that Clow Water Team Member Kent Arnold (pictured on the right) was awarded the Safety Champion Award at the Region V VPPPA Annual Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Kent is a third generation, 45 year employee at Clow Water System and during his tenure has filled various roles within the local USW 7014, including Union President twice. Kent currently manages the VPP Program and coordinates over 15 monthly department committees and is the driving force on their VPP Board of Directors. He also serves as a Special Government Employee (SGE). As a SGE, Kent works with Ohio OSHA one to two times a year certifying and recertifying VPP sites.
Kent travels a couple times a year to other McWane facilities to assist them in reaching their goal of VPP certification. He also manages the Safety Hazard Program at Clow Water and coordinates feedback to Team Members when needed until the hazard is fixed.
Kent is a true testament to the commitment to safety excellence at Clow Water!
