The 2010 Outstanding Service Award was presented to Mr. Floyd during the Foundation’s annual Board of Directors Meeting, held last week in Palm Beach, Florida.
The Outstanding Service Award was formally established in 2008 as a tribute to Harold Leviton’s impressive legacy and dedication to improving electrical safety. Each year, the award honors an individual who has gone above and beyond the call of duty in expanding the Foundation’s interests through steadfast involvement and effective leadership.
For more than 25 years, Mr. Floyd has challenged the status quo of electrical safety in the workplace. He has advanced the application of human factors engineering, electrical technology, and safety management in preventing occupational electrical injuries.
“We are proud to honor Mr. Floyd for his prominent role as a champion of electrical safety and an ardent supporter of ESFI’s mission to advocate electrical safety in the home and the workplace,” explains ESFI president Brett Brenner.
Since joining the ESFI Board of Directors in March 1996, Mr. Floyd has been a powerful advocate and resource for ESFI’s workplace safety initiatives. His leadership and guidance have proven pivotal in identifying new strategic opportunities for the Foundation.
Mr. Floyd has been with DuPont since 1973 and currently serves as Principal Consultant, Electrical Safety Technology, furthering the cause of electrical safety in DuPont facilities worldwide.
Among his many accomplishments, Mr. Floyd is an IEEE Fellow, a professional member of the American Society of Safety Engineers, a Certified Safety Professional, a Certified Maintenance & Reliability Professional, and a registered professional engineer in State of Delaware.
He has published more than 50 papers and articles on workplace electrical safety and is frequently called upon to speak at conferences, seminars and tutorials.
“We are truly appreciative of the key role that Mr. Floyd has played in strengthening ESFI’s visibility, reputation, and credibility in the workplace safety arena,” noted Brenner.
