National Safety Council honors WMATA's Sarles for safety leadership


The National Safety Council (NSC) has named Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) General Manager and Chief Executive Officer Richard Sarles as one of NSC's 2013 "CEOs Who Get It" in terms of safety.

The annual list recognizes business leaders who demonstrate "world-class safety" by creating a safety culture as a business imperative, according to an NSC press release.

"The strong example these leaders have set in living the journey and protecting their employees is something we hope all business leaders will follow," said NSC President and CEO Janet Froetscher.

The NSC is a nonprofit organization that focuses on saving lives by preventing injuries and deaths at work, in homes, in communities and on the road. The council advances its mission by partnering with businesses, government agencies, elected officials and the public, NSC officials said.
