Onslow County Safety Officer John Bazzarre proudly presented the Department of Labor Safety Awards on Tuesday, August 8, 2023, praising each county department for making strides towards a safer workplace environment. “Working safely protects our most important asset, our employees, and it allows us to provide exceptional customer service to our citizens. Onslow County should be proud to have such an amazing safety record.” Gold Award Criteria - This award level is based on the DART case rate or cases with days away, restriction or job transfer.
