Harnessing the power of electricity allows us to enjoy our lives more fully and gives us the freedom to work, play, and remain comfortable in almost any circumstance. But as Stan Lee admonished Peter Parker when he received the powers of Spider-Man, “With great power comes great responsibility.”
Safety is everyone’s responsibility at ECE and we view it as a way of life. As the CEO, I’m tasked with developing a culture of transparency, trust, and openness in partnership with the leaders of our organization. The goal is for all employees to feel a sense of responsibility for their own safety as well as those they work alongside.
I’ve been a volunteer firefighter for over 18 years and a captain for more than 13. During that time, I have seen the distressing results of negligence and a willful disregard for safety. At ECE, we cannot afford to leave safety to chance. We constantly remind ourselves of the hazards associated with the work we do and strive to understand how to improve as a team.
ECE members, what are you doing to improve the safety culture in your household? Do your children or grandchildren have a healthy respect for the power that runs alongside our roadways? Our co-op takes safety education seriously, and we hope our members do, too. Please take a moment to visit our website’s Safety tab, then educate those around you about one thing you learned.
We may not all be superheroes who can swing from a web, but we can have a positive impact when it comes to the safety of those we love.
At your service we remain,
