Cutler Associates' New Safety Officer Retires from 20 Years in the US Air Force

WORCESTER, MA (July 28, 2014) – From Germany to Missouri, Guam to New Mexico, England to Washington, Shane M. Sweeney proudly served the United States of America over a remarkable 20-year career in the US Air Force.  His service was honored this past weekend at a ceremony in Leicester, MA, where CMSgt Hendershot and Major General Rice paid tribute to Shane and his family and presented him with his final commendation medals.

Shane’s experience in the US Air Force groomed him as an accomplished environmental health and safety professional.  He has specialized training in OSHA, FEMA, HAZMAT, HAZDEK, and is also a certified Quality Assurance, Compliance and Munitions Inspector.  Shane’s most recent assignment was as Safety Manager at Fairchild AFB in Washington and prior to that in Lakenheath, England.  Recognized with numerous medals and awards over the course of his military career, Shane was a dedicated officer, committed to excellence.

When he decided to retire from the military and embark on a new phase of his career, Shane moved his family back to his home town of Leicester, MA.  This proved very good news for Cutler Associates.  We share Shane’s commitment to excellence and are pleased to put his expertise to good use as our new Corporate Safety Officer.  Shane will be setting safety policy and procedures and will train Cutler personnel to ensure continued adherence to sound safety practices.  Cutler’s consistently award-winning safety program is bound to be kicked-up a notch under Shane’s capable guidance.  We welcome Shane to the Cutler team – and thank him for his service to our country.
