New Orleans, LA – The National Safety Council recently announced this year’s recipient of its Marion Martin Award, presented annually to one or more outstanding female safety professionals. Stephanie Miller was honored during the opening session of the 2023 NSC Safety Congress & Expo.
Miller is the safety and health manager of critical projects and waste operations for UCOR, the premier environmental cleanup contractor for the Department of Energy’s Office of Environmental Management in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
A certified industrial hygienist, certified safety professional and safety-trained supervisor, Miller manages safety and health for capital projects, construction, subcontractors, strategic partnerships and the waste management division, which specializes in transporting and disposing of radiologically and chemically contaminated material from decontamination and demolition of decommissioned nuclear facilities. She has led the development of nationally recognized UCOR programs for total worker health and heat illness prevention, launched several professional development programs and established UCOR’s safety and health internship program. These programs have provided growth pathways and have increased the number of women entering the safety and health field.
“NSC is proud to celebrate women who are committed to safety and inclusion through its Marion Martin Award, and Stephanie Miller is a professional we are thrilled to honor this year,” said Lorraine Martin, NSC president and CEO. “Stephanie has helped advance the careers of more than 20 women in safety and health roles during her time at UCOR and embodies the spirit of this award through and through. It is with great pleasure we present her with this award.”
Launched in 2016, the Marion Martin Award annually celebrates the accomplishments of women in safety who have paved the way to success for other women in the profession.
