Utility Recognized for Safety Record
Kaukauna Utilities recently received the MEUW Safety Achievement Award for 2003. Sponsored by the Municipal Electric Utilities of Wisconsin (MEUW), the state association representing Wisconsin’s 82 public power communities, Kaukauna Utilities received the 2003 Award along with 28 other community owned electric utilities in Wisconsin.
The selection criteria for the Award is a weighted formula that considers a utility’s safety record for the past year, as well as its proactive safety activities, such as having utility employees regularly attend safety training sessions.
“The MEUW Safety Achievement Award emphasizes the importance of safe work habits and regular safety training, recognizing those utilities who offer regular safety training for their employees and whose employees achieve particular safe operations” said MEUW Executive Director David J. Benforado.
“On behalf of the employees of Kaukauna Utilities, we are proud to receive this safety award”, said Jeff Feldt, General Manager. “The employees earned this award and should be commended for their consistent dedication to safety. Our utility is dedicated to safety – it’s job #1 – because it’s the right thing to do.”
