MetroPower achieves ZERO recordable injuries in 2021
Without question, there is nothing more important than the safety of our employees—and that is reflected in our universal safety goal of zero injuries. Even in the face of a pandemic, our employees kept safety at the forefront of their minds.
In 2021, MetroPower employees logged 1,435,285 hours of work over the course of 365 days without a single injury. We have not achieved this goal since 2013, when Troy DeLee took over the Safety Department.
“This tremendous accomplishment was only made possible by a commitment from each and every MetroPower employee and a safety leadership team that equips those employees with meaningful resources and guidance,” said CEO Jim Ditter. “Congratulations to all, and thank you to Troy DeLee and his team for keeping our most valued asset—our people—safe.”
It is clear that our employees look out for each other and have embraced the company’s Behavior Based Safety (BBS) program, which helps us identify safer ways to perform work tasks through observations and follow up training. Over the course of the year, 8,850 BBS observations were submitted, reaching 106% of our company goal. We are incredibly proud to be a part of a company that values safety so highly and commend all employees who serve in that capacity.
“Embedded in our values are the words and phrases: a servant’s heart, the golden rule, sharing and learning, courage, passion and wisdom,” notes Danny Gibson. “All play a vital role in living a safety culture, fulfilling our desire and moral obligation to protect people. I honor and congratulate our leaders, our safety team and each field employee who made this accomplishment possible.”
To achieve our goal of zero accidents in the years to come, we must all continue practicing our motto of safety: Working Together for Tomorrow.
