Nov 01, 2018

ASSP members Tim Page-Bottorff, CSP, CET, and SMSgt B. Leubinka Romero were honored with the 2018 National Safety Council (NSC) Distinguished Service to Safety Award. Each year, the award recognizes individuals with exceptional dedication to safety and health. Honorees are nominated by colleagues and reviewed by NSC division committees.

“Our winners bring several lifetimes of dedication and commitment to safety,” says NSC President and CEO Deborah A.P. Hersman. “Honoring their achievements, we can set the bar for what’s possible, and inspire others to pursue our shared goal of eliminating preventable deaths.”

Page-Bottorff’s 27-year career began as a marine in Operation Desert Storm, helping put out oil fires. After leaving the military, he became a safety professional, eventually achieving the CSP designation. Tim is the owner of Total Safety Compliance and is a senior consultant with SafeStart. He has received the Safety Professional of the Year Award in 2014 from Region II, from his chapter in 2015, and from ASSP in 2018. Page-Bottorff is a professional member of ASSP’s Arizona and Colorado chapters, a member of our Consultants, Public Sector, and Training and Communications practice specialties, and a member of our Women in Safety Excellence Common Interest Group.

Leubinka Romero is the 55 Wing Occupational Safety Superintendent at Offutt AFB, Nebraska. She manages the safety program, including occupational safety, industrial safety, sports and recreation safety, traffic safety and risk management of more than 12,000 military and federal employees assigned to 47 units.
