We Did It Again...One Million Hours!

We Did It Again...One Million Hours!

January 28, 2016

For the fourth time in our 110 year history, we achieved an important milestone — one million consecutive man hours without a lost workday due to injury. It took all 451 of us nearly 15 months to achieve this accomplishment.

The first time we reached that mark was in September of 2010. We built on that momentum and hit the two million mark in February 2012. The third million mark happened in 2013, and this recent milestone was reached this past November.

When you consider the challenges of delivering electric, water, sewer, and natural gas to nearly 150,000 customer connections, it is a remarkable feat to work a million hours without a major injury — not once, not twice, but four times!

It took each and every employee to reach this milestone, and to celebrate our team effort, we were treated to a One Million Hour Achievement Lunch at the Electric/Water Resources Maintenance Building on February 2nd. The event included an amazing performance by "Magician for Non-Believers" Peter Boie. In addition, each employee received 3,000 safety points and a long-sleeve t-shirt to mark the occasion.

Congratulations, and let's all safely make it to 2,000,000!
