Each year, CSU chooses one student or alumni who is making waves in the world of safety for the Outstanding Safety Professional Award. This year, Eric Simmons stood out above the crowd for his success and dedication at Helix Electric in Temecula, California.
While he began his career at Helix 14 years ago, Simmons stepped into the role of corporate safety director three years ago. During 2020, he has focused much of his attention on keeping employees safe with COVID-19 policies.
“When I transitioned into my role as a corporate safety director, I already had several professional safety certifications and a good knowledge of safety processes,” Simmons said.
