Norman James Receives Prestigious National Awards

AGC/VT’s very own, Norman James, Manager of Project RoadSafe, was honored with the Vermont Governor’s Award for Outstanding Workplace Safety, and the National Safety Council’s Alive at 25 Instructor of the Year award.

The National Safety Council has recognized James as its Instructor of the Year for teaching the Alive @ 25 teen driving program and the Governor’s Award was a special recognition for James’ efforts in education and outreach for occupational highway safety.

Cathleen Lamberton, AGC/VT Executive Vice President, said, “These two awards are especially rewarding because they recognize Norm’s hard work and dedication to helping younger drivers understand the role that attitude and behavior play in being safe on our highways.”

David Henderson, Director of the National Safety Council of Northern New England, presented the Alive at 25 Instructor of the Year Award said, “Norm was chosen from hundreds of instructors across the country for this well-deserved acknowledgement of his dedication, leadership, and commitment to safe teen driving in Vermont.” 

Scott Meyers, chief of Project WorkSAFE in the Vermont Department of Labor, presented the Governor’s Award to James saying that his strong advocacy for driver safety deserves this recognition and that James has been on the front line of workplace driver safety for more than a decade.

Congratulations Norm on two well-deserved awards!
