On May 12, 2010, PowerSouth Energy Cooperative’s Telecommunications department recorded five consecutive safe working years.

“For an effective safety program, all of us must respect safety and practice it in every job we do,” said Vice President of Power Delivery Larry Avery. “Reaching this milestone is evidence that you respect safety not only for yourself but also for your coworkers.”

During the past year, the department worked 43,849 hour with no lost-time injuries, and they have logged 181,660 total hours since the last lost-time injury occurred.

To honor the department’s accomplishment, they were awarded with a luncheon on June 14.

“Our good safety record is only possible through their combined efforts and dedication to working safely,” said Safety Manager Buddy Manring. “At the end of the day, we all want to go home healthy and happy.”

PowerSouth plans to maintain a safe work environment for all employees in the coming years and regards the Telecommunications department’s dedication to safety as a victory for the whole company.
