Recognition for Championing Workers' Safety


In partnership with the Workers Compensation Fund and the University of Utah, the Rocky Mountain Center for Occupational and Environmental Health will be naming their new education center building in honor of Senate Minority Leader Karen Mayne and her late husband, Ed Mayne, who served in the Utah State Senate from 1995 to 2007.

The "Senators Eddie P. And Karen Mayne Education Center," at 250 East 200 South in Salt Lake City, Utah, will give recognition to the great legacy and ongoing work of the Maynes.

Whether it was in the Kennecott Copper Mine or in the halls of the State Senate, Ed Mayne fought for the safety of workers and working families. "The safety for others was his journey," stated Senator Karen Mayne, after receiving a citation from the University of Utah Health Dean, Dr. Michael L. Good, on Thursday.

Year after year, Senator Karen Mayne continues to be a strong voice for workers, and her legislation demonstrates her commitment to ensuring safe and healthy working environments for all. She is pleased with the honor and is grateful that the memory of Ed Mayne will be cemented.
