Kentucky Utilities receives Governor’s Safety and Health Award

Danville substation honored for safety record
FRANKFORT, Ky. (Feb. 21, 2012) – Kentucky Labor Cabinet Secretary Mark Brown today presented Kentucky Utilities’ Central Substation Department with a Governor’s Safety and Health Award.

Central substation employees have worked more than 500,000 hours without a lost-time incident.

“This award signifies the emphasis that Kentucky Utilities’ managers and employees place on worker safety,” said Brown. “This award covers a nine-year span of time and builds upon a previous award for 250,000 hours without an incident that requires lost-time on the job.”

The Governor’s Safety and Health Award provides special recognition for outstanding safety and health performance and encourages the development of programs designed to reduce and even eliminate occupational injuries and illnesses. The award is given to employers and their employees who together have achieved the required number of hours worked without experiencing a lost-time injury or illness.

There are 13 employees at the Danville facility.
