IDOL Director presents Governor’s Safety Award at DIOSH Day

PEORIA—To promote safety in the workplace, Illinois Department of Labor (IDOL) Acting Director Anna Hui joined employers and employees at the 26thAnnual Downstate Illinois Occupational Safety and Health (DIOSH) Day Conference. Illinois OSHA, along with many industry groups, sponsored this event to provide expert occupational safety and health management resources for employers of all sizes and industries.
 
“The health and safety of all workers remains one of our top priorities,” IDOL Acting Director Hui said. “It is great to see so many employees and employers come out to learn more about ensuring workplace health and safety.”
 
The conference offered breakout sessions and networking opportunities with speakers and vendors from industry, higher education and regulatory agencies.  It was a venue to learn about best practices and ask questions of peers and compliance agents about how standards are practically applied. Illinois OSHA, a division within IDOL, was available to answer questions and sign up businesses for its On-Site Safety & Health Consultation Program, which offers free, confidential safety assistance to small to medium size employers of 500 or less.
 
For the past six years at DIOSH Day, IDOL has also presented the Governor’s Safety Award to a person who has made significant contributions to safety and health training or research that have had lasting impact for workers. This year’s award recipient is Kevin Gorshe, who is the safety director at CORE Construction Illinois in Morton, IL. The company is known for restoring the Illinois State Capitol, the Illinois State University Science Building, Pere Marquette Historic Hotel renovation in Peoria, and the Freedom’s Path Veterans Housing at Hines VA Hospital.
