Roanoke Electric Cooperative recognized for gold-standard in safety

Aulander, North Carolina-based Roanoke Electric Cooperative was given the Gold Award for their outstanding safety practices for the second year in a row by the North Carolina Department of Labor’s Safety Awards Program.

The annual Safety Awards Program recognizes around 2,000 private and public firms that create the safest possible environment for their employees to prevent – and often eliminate – work-related accidents.

Roanoke Electric Cooperative has already garnered 261,833 hours without incurring a lost-time incident. In the industry, “lost-time incident” is a term used to describe a work-related injury or illness that can lead to loss of time from work and can affect normal day-to-day operations.

Suffering injuries from a work-related accident can force you to take time off work for recovery purposes, which can consequently reduce your earning capabilities. Such an instance calls for financial assistance that is mandated by law.
