The Energy Association, on behalf of its statewide electric and natural gas member companies, will be featuring a safety display at this Thursday, September 14th event. Safety is of paramount importance to the Energy Association and its member companies.
The EAP’s display will focus on the precautions that should be taken when operating near utility facilities. What to do before beginning any digging or excavation project, cross bores safety awareness, as well as the importance of making sure there is adequate space from overhead power lines – information on OSHA’s “Ten Foot Circle of Safety” – will be featured.
“Pennsylvania’s energy utilities want to educate the public on how to stay safe,” said Terrance J. Fitzpatrick, President and CEO, Energy Association of Pennsylvania. “Before you begin to dig anywhere, you should check with PA One Call System by calling 8-1-1, to prevent damage to underground facilities and avoid potentially hazardous situations. We congratulate our members for their continuing commitment to improving safety for their customers and in the workplace.
For over twenty years, the Association and our predecessor organizations have been recognizing companies for their efforts in safety through the EAP’s annual Safety Awards program.”
