ISASH – MAYNARD COE PROFESSIONAL ACHIEVEMENT AWARD

The ISASH – Maynard Coe Professional Achievement Award recognizes the important role played by Maynard Coe in the early years of the organization. Coe served as director of the Farm Division of the National Safety Council for 20 years, and in that capacity he enlisted the help of dedicated people in universities, farm organizations and agricultural industry in establishing farm safety as a recognized profession. From the beginning he was an inspiration to farm safety specialists and educators, giving them advice and encouragement. Later, when numbers increased, he urged them to form their own professional organization.

The purpose of this award is to encourage high levels of professionalism among agricultural safety and health leaders.
