First Transit announced that Lynn Cohoe, regional safety manager, was selected to receive the 2015 Senior Safety Professional Award from the Canadian Society of Safety Engineering (CSSE) in the provinces of British Columbia and Yukon.

“Lynn is dedicated to passenger safety every day,” said First Transit President Brad Thomas. “This recognition acknowledges Lynn’s ongoing diligence to safety.”

Cohoe joined the First Transit team in March 2014 as regional safety manager. She also serves on the board of CSSE as regional VP. Cohoe’s other achievements include the CSSE Senior Safety Professional of the Year Award, the British Columbia Transit Leadership Award and Team Achievement Award.

Each year, the CSSE partners with the North American Occupational Safety & Health Week Steering Committee in British Columbia to acknowledge the award winners.
