The world would come to a grinding halt without utility workers and the companies they work for. With all utility companies and workers have to worry about, safety priorities for vehicles and drivers have a tendency to get pushed down the list.
As always, this year’s EUFMC was an outstanding meeting. It is the electrical utility conference to attend when it comes to addressing the specific needs of fleet managers and their operations.
Mother Nature was definitely not on our side for the Drive-Thru and equipment show on the first day -talk about a rain storm - but we all managed to wade our way through and dry off in time for the Sponsorship Recognition Dinner that evening.
Preco Electronics is excited to announce Kim Hodges, Fleet Manager at Montana-Dakota Utilities, is the recipient of our 2015 Safety in Motion Award. Mr. Hodges, a 20-year veteran of the Montana-Dakota Utilities, is responsible for the maintenance and repair of the utility's fleet that spans eight Northern and Pacific Northwest states.
Preco’s Safety in Motion is an annual award that recognizes an individual who demonstrates the highest initiative, imagination and involvement within the safety industry.
The men and women who work in the utility industry encounter safety issues many of us don’t even realize exist. For this reason, Preco Electronics has declared March Utility Safety Month to raise awareness and help prevent fatalities and injuries associated within the utility industry.
During Utility Safety Month we will be discussing best safety practices, focusing on utility specific safety concerns, examining safety technology solutions, and more.
