Continuous Service Award

 

Keith Johnson

Heated buildings is a given for most of us. But what we take for granted requires the diligence of skilled Facilities Management Department, Heating Plant employees. A coworker said of Keith Johnson, "Many employees may not know him or even see him at work, unless they spend a lot of time in crawl spaces or mechanical rooms, but if the steam is flowing and the buildings are warm, you know Keith is hard at work."

Since coming to UMD in 2003, Keith has become known for his diligent attention to details: checking and rechecking areas of concern, keeping others informed of outstanding issues, and searching for potential problems – before they become failures. His eye for locating and troubleshooting boiler problems, is well known in his department, as is his willingness to share his knowledge and expertise.

Keith is also known for his eye for safety. He serves as a voluntary member of the Safety Committee. He has revised our safety lock-out procedures for the main plant boilers and also volunteered to assist contractors working on campus with lock-outs for their projects.

For all his diligence and dedication to the campus – and to keeping us warm – we are very pleased to present this Outstanding Service Award to Keith.
