CHEC Employees Hit Safety Milestone

As of December 31, 2014, CHEC employees reached a significant milestone by working over nine years and more than 500,000 hours without a lost time accident.  This has been accomplished while working in the aftermath of several minor and at least one major hurricane. 

Ken Park, Loss Control Specialist with Federated Insurance, works with cooperatives all over the country and has commented that achieving more than 500,000 hours without a lost time accident is very rare in the industry.  It is especially rare for a cooperative of CHEC’s small size. 

Safety is CHEC’s number one priority for employees, members and visitors.  Whatever the task, the first aspect of performing that job is determining how it can be done safely.  These practices extend from the most dangerous tasks of restoring power after a storm to simple everyday jobs. CHEC is committed to continuing to work in a culture of safety that permeates everything the cooperative does.
