WEC Carolina Energy Solutions has implemented a companywide policy making zero accidents one of our company’s prime directives. To encourage achievement of this goal, we’ve established an internal award program to recognize and reward individuals who not only practice safety first, but inspire others to do so as well. The success of these efforts can be seen now. With over 1.5 million man-hours, we’ve earned an EMR rating that’s consistently lower than .76.
The way we see it, safety is a way of life, not just a business goal. It is the realization that we share a common concern with our friends, families, and fellow employees – the health and well being of us all. Without a total commitment to safety from the principals of the company to the last employee hired, all the manuals or policies in the world are useless. We realize that our safety program depends on maintaining a drug-free and alcohol-free workplace. To make sure the program is strictly enforced, random samplings of everyone in the company - up to and including office personnel - are routinely conducted.
