Safety Award Patch

For the first time ever the winter-over crew this year had a perfect safety record with no lost-time accidents.  There were a few first aids, but those don't really count as occupational injuries.  This was quite a feat and everyone who was at Pole this winter should be proud of that record.  To commemorate the achievement we designed a patch and Raytheon Polar Services Company had one made for each Polie and had them hand-carried to the Pole on the first plane in.  Thanks Raytheon.  We handed one out to every winter-over at the awards ceremony at the end of the winter.

Commemorated on the patch was the coldest temperature of the winter (-104F); the number of safe consecutive days (274); and the number of winter-over Polies (47).
