PEARL HARBOR-HICKAM, Hawaii (NNS) -- Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Hawaii presented Electrician Eduardo Lim with the command's Fiscal Year 2016 Safety Star Individual Excellence award at its annual awards ceremony April 26.
"It is with a great pleasure that I acknowledge the exceptional safety work Eduardo Lim provided to the command in 2016," said NAVFAC Hawaii Commanding Officer Capt. Richard Hayes III. "He demonstrated exceptional initiative, superb attention to construction project drawings and specifications while adhering to strict safety requirements."
Lim, a resident of Waipahu, Hawaii, consistently performs his duties with skill, eagerness and safety is always first priority. His superior and technical competence is truly outstanding.
"Eddie integrates risk management for on and off duty decisions resulting in no 'mishaps' or 'near miss' occurrences," said Project Management and Execution Superintendent Robert Canino. "During a project to relocate a pedestrian walkway at Building 150, a very busy location on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, he instinctively scrutinized the hazards, ingeniously developed a comprehensive traffic control plan, installed temporary lighting to adequately illuminate the worksite protecting the workforce during evening work hours, and ensured there was enough Joint Base notification so personnel on the base were aware of the traffic flow changes."
Regardless of a project's complexity or the magnitude of a job, Lim can always be relied on to see the work completed expeditiously and efficiently. In addition, his willingness to ensure all his personnel receive proper safety notices and warnings, confirm that they are up-to-date with their various required safety training, and commitment to discuss safety matters at morning muster make him invaluable and a Safety Star at NAVFAC Hawaii.
