Governor's Employee Safety Awards (GESA)
The Governor’s Employee Safety Award (GESA) was established in 1980 to promote health and safety in the workplace by recognizing individuals and groups who have provided outstanding health and safety to the State. Awards are presented to individuals or groups who have responded to hazardous or life threatening events, reduced the number of occupational injuries or vehicular accidents, as well as those who have developed safety programs that are not a part of their normal job duties during the preceding year.
