American Municipal Power, Inc. (AMP) congratulates the Bowling Green Electric Division for receiving a first place Excellence in Safety Award during the American Public Power Association’s (APPA) 2023 Engineering & Operations Technical Conference, which took place April 30-May 2 in Pasadena, California.
“We are pleased to see so many AMP members be recognized for demonstrating their commitment to the safety of their employees,” said Jolene Thompson, AMP President/CEO. “Earning the APPA Safety Award is a great accomplishment, and we congratulate Bowling Green for their steadfast commitment to safety.”
Recognized for safety practices (demonstrated by having the lowest safety incident rate within its group), determined by worker-hours of exposure, the Bowling Green Electric Division was awarded first place in Group C (30,000 to 59,999 worker-hours of exposure).
According to APPA, 283 utilities from across the country entered the annual Safety Awards. Entrants were placed in categories according to their number of worker-hours and ranked based on the most incident-free records during 2022. The incidence rate, used to judge entries, is based on the number of work-related reportable injuries or illness and the number of worker-hours during 2022, as defined by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
