Penelec recently celebrated the safety milestones of employees in the following districts:

  • Shippensburg extended its streak without an OSHA-recordable incident to 12 years. Fourteen employees were recognized. Bargaining-unit members belong to Utility Workers Union of America (UWUA) Local 180.
  • Bradford’s 15 employees achieved one year of OSHA-free work. The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 459 represents union members in the group.

Regional President Nick Austin presented the President’s Safety Excellence Award to Shippensburg and Bradford employees at separate lunch events. “The Shippensburg and Bradford teams earned this recognition by supporting our efforts to identify and control exposure that leads to safety incidents,” Nick said.

Lewistown employees were on hand to help the Shippensburg group celebrate its safety milestone. Shippensburg and Lewistown are in the same Customer Operations Center.
