“Utilities that receive an APPA Safety Award have demonstrated that they have made the health and safety of their employees a core value. Congratulations to the Minster Electric Department. Minster should be very proud.”

Recognized for safety practices (demonstrated by having the lowest safety incident rate within its group), determined by worker-hours of exposure, the Minster Electric Department was awarded third place in Group A (less than 15,000 worker-hours of exposure).

Entrants were placed in categories according to their number of worker-hours and ranked based on the most incident-free records during 2020. The incidence rate, used to judge entries, is based on the number of work-related reportable injuries or illnesses and the number of worker-hours during 2020, as defined by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
