Safety Manager Rod Bell Receives Above and Beyond Award

FORT WRIGHT, Ky.
– Rod Bell, senior safety manager at Sanitation District No. 1, has received the Employer Support of the Guard Reserve Program (ESGR) Above and Beyond Award.

Bell, who has volunteered as the Northern Kentucky Area 7 director of the Kentucky ESGR for 12 years, was presented the award by Ret. Col. Phil Miller, Kentucky state chairman of the ESGR.

“It is an honor and a privilege to have represented the outstanding men and women who serve our country and the employers who actively and willingly provide support to their employees currently serving in the Guard or Reserve,” Bell said. “I am truly humbled by this recognition.”

The Above and Beyond Award recognizes employers at the local level who have gone above and beyond the legal requirements of the United Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act by providing their Guard and Reserve employees additional non-mandatory benefits such as differential or full pay to offset lost wages and extended health benefits.

ESGR, a Department of Defense program, was established in 1972 to promote cooperation and understanding between Reserve Component Service members and their civilian employers, and to assist in the resolution of conflicts arising from an employee’s military commitment. The program is supported by 3,750 volunteers in 54 committees located across the United States.
