The West Central Ohio Safety Council is excited to announce the recipient of this year's Ruth Kreher Safety Person of the Year,
Deputy Robert Fisher with the Allen County Job and Family Services.
Deputy Fisher's presence at the Allen County Job and Family Services Agency has made their employees and clients feel safer knowing that there is an on-site Officer on duty at all times. He goes above and beyond his line of responsibility, meaning he not only monitors Agency safety, he is also always willing to lend a helpful hand. For example, on any given day, you could see Deputy Fisher assisting a client in the lobby with our new lobby registration system or in the parking lot helping someone with car trouble. Fisher is also a familiar face with children who come into the Agency with their parents, grandparents or guardians as he is known for having stickers or suckers in his back pocket. Additionally, Fisher has assisted if there are unruly clients and has calmly defused any conflicts before they become an issue which could lead to safety issues in the workplace. Fisher’s work and commitment to safety extends beyond the workplace, as he plays a crucial part in helping to lead the Agency’s Adult Protective Services program. In this role, Fisher collaborates among employees, as well as other community organizations, to provide necessary services to the county’s elder population, ensuring their overall safety and well-being.
Ruth Kreher Safety Person of the Year Award was presented at the Annual Awards Banquet on April 9th.
