SALT LAKE CITY — Rocky Mountain Power has been ranked No. 1 in safety in the country by the 2013 Edison Electric Institute’s Safety Survey.
The utility earned the ranking due to the lowest Occupational Safety and Health Administration recordable rate — for injuries and illnesses requiring medical treatment — and lowest number of incidents that restricted employees from performing full duty in their job classification.
“This is a remarkable achievement that truly shows Rocky Mountain Power employees are looking out for their own safety and the well-being of their co-workers,” said Michael Felice, Rocky Mountain Power director of safety and labor relations.
The national survey included 44 transmission and utility companies. Rocky Mountain Power also came in third for the number of lost time days due to an injury or illness.
Rocky Mountain Power also ranked first in fewest number of lost time days due to an injury or illness and lowest preventable vehicle accident rate per million miles.
“We have a responsibility to keep our customers and the public safe around our facilities and while we are providing service,” Felice said. “Our employees working on the front lines have a real commitment to safety.”
