Safety ambassadors will help raise awareness of safe work practices, among other duties.

The Postal Service is encouraging employees to become safety ambassadors, volunteer positions that will help the organization promote safety.

Safety ambassadors will be located in facilities across the nation, where they will help identify and abate hazards, raise awareness of safe work practices and improve communication on safety matters.

“The ambassadors will be critical members of the nationwide safety team,” Safety and OSHA Compliance Manager Linda DeCarlo said. “They will lead by example, provide valuable input and make a difference.”

All employees may volunteer to become safety ambassadors. Applicants will be subject to a selection process, and all ambassadors will undergo required training by late March.

To apply, talk to your supervisor. The Safety Toolkit site has more information.
