Nebraska Medicine Receives Nebraska’s Safest Companies Award

The National Safety Council, Nebraska (NSCN) recently awarded Nebraska Medicine with its “Nebraska’s Safest Companies” award. It will be presented on Wednesday, May 9, as part of the NSCN’s 35th annual Celebration of Safety event. NSCN is a private, nonprofit organization that partners with businesses, schools, law enforcement, firefighters, hospitals and Nebraska communities to provide education and training focused on keeping Nebraskans safe.

The award signifies our exemplary safety record, which is better than the national average when compared to the rest of our industry and recognizes comprehensive safety programs that our organization has implemented.

“The Celebration of Safety honors organizations that have achieved excellence in safety this past year and we are proud to recognize their achievements in providing a safer Nebraska for their employees and their families,” says Eric Koeppe, president and CEO, National Safety Council, Nebraska.

“At Nebraska Medicine, we are focused on being the safest place possible — for patients, their families and our employees,” says CEO Dan DeBehnke, MD, MBA. “The recent Shout Out for Safety initiative, in which we address safety concerns on a daily basis, is one example of our commitment to improving safety. The upcoming Zero Harms Tools training for all colleagues is the next step on our journey to safety and high reliability. “
