2011 Bull Moose Award
Named for Bullwinkle, nature’s first industrial hygienist, who patrolled the woods with his faithful technician, Rocky, in search of recognizable hazards, keeping forest and glen safe for all, and waging a constant battle for prevention against Boris and Natasha, the twin Compliance Officers. This award, our most prestigious, goes to the Metro-NY Section member who best exemplifies the characteristics of the ideal industrial hygienist.
This year’s recipient has extraordinary powers of recognition. His 20/20 hindsight makes him able to spot a hazard after he steps into it. He has keen powers of evaluation; his highly refined sense of smell can tell when he’s present in atmospheres that are IDLH (immediately dangerous to life and horns). We all can’t be perfect, and our recipient is no exception. The truth is, He’s a bit out of control: he has a tendency to leap before looking. Despite his faults, we think there is no one more deserving of this award.
A great social meeting took place on 8.6.11 in the Central Park of NYC. AIHA Metro NY welcomed President Michael Byrnes from LiRo Engineers, Inc. and President Elect Damon Baumann from Thornton Tomasetti. Cool CEScenter.com (Creative Environment Solutions Corp.) hats and coolers were given out to all participants at the Social.
