Susan Scheels won the Loss Prevention Directorate’s 2021 Safety Motto Contest.

The importance of being a good example isn’t lost on Susan Scheels.

A visual merchandiser at the Malmstrom Air Force Base Exchange, she was recently awarded the top prize in the Loss Prevention Directorate’s 2021 Safety Motto Contest.

The winning slogan, “BEE Safe Today and Lead the Way!,” is one of several that Scheels crafted and entered in this year’s contest.

“I thought, `Bee safe and lead the way,’ kind of lead by example, work safely,” she said. “When other people see you working safely, they may try to do something similar.”

Scheels won a $100 Exchange gift card, a challenge coin from Loss Prevention Vice President Steve Boyd and a certificate of appreciation from LP’s Health and Safety Office.

“This year, the coronavirus pandemic has driven home how vitally important it is to follow proper safety measures,” said Boyd. “Susan’s creative submission encourages associates to take the initiative to help ensure that we all stay safe and healthy on the job and at home.”

More than 900 entries were submitted. Four runners-up were also awarded $50 Exchange gift cards, challenge coins and appreciation certificates:

Alison Beck, visual merchandiser assistant, Hill AFB, “Bee a safety hero, keep accidents at zero!”

Janel Hamilton, supervisory customer experience associate, Maxwell AFB, “Work like a BEE to Stay Accident Free!”

Paige Haynes, recruiting assistant, Fort Lee, “Safety is Key and the Way to Bee!”

Darwin Flores, audit project manager, Exchange HQ, “BEEing safety smart is doing your part!”
