2017 NWPPA Safety Award winners announced
Vancouver, Wash. – An annual tradition, the 2017 Northwest Public Power Association (NWPPA) Safety Award winners were announced at last week’s Engineering & Operations Conference in Reno, Nev., on April 13, 2017. 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 2016, and the lost work days (the severity rate) in 2016. Employees accepted the awards on behalf of their utilities at the conference’s closing banquet on Thursday evening in front of nearly 300 public power industry peers.
