Campbell County employers praised for their safety efforts

Wyoming's Department of Workforce Services hosted their annual Summit last week in Cheyenne. During the conference, awards were presented by Governor Matt Mead and Workforce Services head Jon Cox to recognize the outstanding contributions of Wyoming companies and the professionals that they employ towards fostering safer work environments. Campbell County was proudly represented by award winner Wyodac Resources Development Corporation in the category of 2015 Mine Safety Small Employer of the year. These awards are presented to groups demonstrating excellence in safety and health systems that protect their employees in the workplace and promote corporate citizenship.

Many echoed the sentiment that we're experiencing minerals industry setbacks, but that Wyoming is no stranger to the ebbs and flows of natural resource price fluctuations and this will just require us to refocus as we come together to work toward a solution. *(Feature image: Jim Engel, Engel & Associates in Gillette and Workforce Services Council Chairperson introduces a panel of Wyoming Economy experts during the Summit)* #county17 #news #bootstrapped
