FreeState Electric Cooperative recently joined NRECA’s Commitment to Zero Contacts initiative launched in April 2018 to combat an alarming rate of serious injuries and fatalities (SIFs) among co-op lineworkers. A nationwide survey of 51,000 co-op employees conducted annually between 2006 and 2015 found an average of more than 23 SIFs each year.
FreeState also adopted the use of a job site safety briefing app developed for the program by Federated Rural Electric Insurance Exchange.
