Each year during the Nebraska Safety Council Conference and Trade Show, the work of organizations that have made a difference in workplace safety, is recognized by the Nebraska Safety Council.

The Workplace Safety Award Program is designed for Nebraska Safety Council member companies that encourage and promote the prevention of occupational injuries and illness in their workplaces and have achieved superior results in the success of their safety programs. Applications are peer-reviewed by industry professionals in a volunteer committee that evaluates various aspects of their programs.

Jefferson Community Health & Life was awarded the Spirit Award for its safety achievements in 2021 during an Awards Luncheon which was held on April 21 in Lincoln. Attending to receive the award for JCH&L were safety committee members: Patrick Hoins; Jasmine Schwisow; Becky Bruce; Mick Bruce; Haley Weiner; Marci Gillham; and Nichole Seibolt.

JCH&L had previously earned the Spirit Award in 2019 for the 2018 year. There are several levels of awards.
