Tim Neubauer, President of Raleigh-based Evolution Safety Resources, received the prestigious Outstanding Safety Professional of the Year Award from Columbia Southern University (CSU) on June 25, 2018. The award was established in 2016 with the goal of recognizing members of the Occupational Safety and Health network for their dedication, professionalism, and accomplishments within the industry.
Neubauer is a Certified Safety Professional (CSP) with over 17 years of field experience who specializes in the construction health and safety field. He is a former Senior Consultant for the National Safety Council and has been a safety consultant and instructor for the Safety and Health Council of North Carolina for over 15 years.
“It was an easy decision to nominate Tim for this award,” explained Julia Kunlo, Vice President of Evolution Safety Resources. “He is a remarkably gifted safety professional who clearly embodies the ideals of the University. CSU professors and administrators chose Tim from a large pool of candidates – that says a great deal about his accomplishments in the field and his impact on the University.”
According to Kunlo, Neubauer’s accomplishments are all the more impressive considering he started out as a laborer with a high school education. After entering the work force and discovering his passion for Occupational Safety, he worked full time while attending CSU to earn his Bachelor’s degree in the subject. He is currently pursuing his Master’s degree in the same field and is targeted to graduate in October.
“It is an incredible honor to have been nominated, and life changing to have won,” remarked Neubauer. “As a safety professional, I’ve spent my entire career hoping to make the workplace safer for everyone. This award is a true validation that I’ve impacted people’s lives and that my efforts have had a lasting effect. It means the world to me that I was submitted by a peer and that the CSU staff recognized my commitment to the industry. I plan to use the recognition this award generates to continue my mission of helping workers go home safe.”
