2019 NWPPA Safety Award Winners Announced
Vancouver, Wash. – An annual tradition, the 2019 Northwest Public Power Association Safety Award winners were announced at last week’s Engineering & Operations Conference in Spokane, Wash., on April 11.
Safety contest awards are based upon a review of each utility’s safety contest form, the number of recordable injury/illness cases (the incident rate) in 2018, and the lost work days (the severity rate) in 2018.
Employees accepted the awards on behalf of their utilities at the conference’s closing banquet on Thursday evening in front of over 300 public power industry peers.
