MARSHFIELD — Marshfield Utilities is one of the few community-owned electric utilities in the state to receive a 2015 MEUW Gold Safety Achievement Award from the Municipal Electric Utilities of Wisconsin (MEUW), the association representing Wisconsin’s 82 public power communities. Award winners were recognized during the MEUW Annual Conference in Elkhart Lake in June.
The selection criteria for the MEUW Safety Achievement Award is a weighted formula that considers a utility’s occupational safety record for the past year as well as its proactive safety activities such as conducting employee safety training, developing and maintaining written safety procedures, and implementing workplace injury prevention measures. The award recognizes utilities for establishing a strong safety culture.
“On behalf of the employees of Marshfield Utilities, we are proud to receive this safety award,” said Nicolas Kumm, Electric, Communications, & Gas Manager. “The employees earned this award and should be commended for their unwavering dedication to safety.”
