Ellen Mecray
Ellen Mecray takes a subsample from sediment collected in Long Island Sound on the research vessel Connecticut in November 1999 for toxicity tests. Gloves protect Ellen and the sample from contamination.
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)'s Safety and Environmental Branch awarded Ellen Mecray the Individual Safety, Health, and Environmental Achievement Award, which was presented to her in early August.

This award recognizes Ellen's outstanding leadership as laboratory manager at the Woods Hole Field Center (WHFC), a position she began in late 1999, serving initially as the acting manager and becoming the permanent manager in 2000.

Since that time, Ellen has worked diligently and energetically to make safety and environmental health a part of the daily routine in the laboratories and in the work place. The many achievements and changes that have happened in Woods Hole cover areas that range from improved laboratory analytical strategies to expanded first-aid/CPR certification. Ellen has facilitated personnel and leadership training, as well as enhancing fire-safety procedures and updating all safety documents.

Congratulations, Ellen, for improving the quality of the workplace environment!
