Youngstown Reaches One Year Safety Mark

Youngstown Service Building

October 25, 2019

Ohio Edison recently celebrated the safety achievements of employees at Youngstown Service Building.

The President’s Safety Excellence Award was presented to 179 employees for working one year without an OSHA-recordable incident. Thirty of those individuals were recognized as members of Ohio Edison’s Quarter Century of Safety Club for working 25 years or more OSHA-free.

“Personal safety starts from day one on the job, but the challenge is continuing this commitment year- round,” said Ed Shuttleworth, regional president, Ohio Edison. “Youngstown employees have embraced that challenge and are committed to future safety success.”

Bargaining-unit employees at Youngstown are represented by UWUA Local 118.
