National Safety Council Arizona Chapter

Howard Pyle Safety Award

Arizona Chapter National Safety Council is soliciting nominations from all interested parties.

Annual Governor Howard Pyle Safety Award

When General Eisenhower became United States President, he appointed former Arizona Governor Howard Pyle as Special Assistant. From war experience, the tragedy of unintentional injuries weighed heavily upon the minds of both men. The President assigned to Governor Pyle the task of coordinating Eisenhower's on-going safety campaigns. After serving for two terms, the Governor spent the next 15 years as CEO of the National Safety Council.

In recognition of Governor Pyle's commitment to safety, Arizona Chapter National Safety Council created the Annual Governor Howard Pyle Safety Award in 1980. This award is given each year to the most deserving agency, company, program or individual making an impact upon the safety in Arizona.
