A&N Electric Cooperative Recognized for Commitment to Safety
A&N Electric Cooperative (ANEC) was recently recognized by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) for its ongoing commitment to safety in the workplace and in providing electric service to its members.
CEO Butch Williamson accepted the Rural Electric Safety Achievement Program (RESAP) certificate on Monday, July 23 in Hot Springs, Va. at the Annual Meeting of the Virginia, Maryland & Delaware Association of Electric Cooperatives (VMDAEC). Jeff Edwards, the Southside Electric Cooperative CEO and chairman of VMDAEC’s safety committee, presented this certificate of recognition
Edwards noted, “Everyone is aware how dangerous electric utility line work can be, and that a rock-solid commitment to safety is essential every second these dedicated individuals are working to build or maintain electric lines. This certificate doesn’t just recognize a commitment to safety by line workers; it recognizes the fact that everyone at ANEC, from board members and managers to line crews, is committed to carrying out their work safely. We applaud their staff for this commitment.”
Williamson added, “This recognition is testament to the fact that our employees understand that safety comes first here at our cooperative. I congratulate all of them for earning this achievement. We have great employees, and we want them to return safely home to their families every evening. The safety of our members and the public is paramount as well, and the RESAP achievement recognizes our strong, aggressive effort in that area.”
