05/13/2005 ~ Keys Energy Services (KEYS) was recently awarded a Florida Municipal Electric Association (FMEA) Safety Award for its continued commitment to safety and low incident rate during the past year.

For the past 19 years, FMEA has recognized the efforts of Florida’s municipally owned utilities to stress worker safety as the number one priority. Utilities are placed into categories according to their total man-hours worked, and rewarded for the most incident-free records. The incidence rate used to judge utilities is based on the number of work-related reportable injuries or illnesses compared to the total number of worker-hours during 2004, as defined by the Occupational Safety and health Administration (OSHA).

KEYS was awarded in category D, which is comprised of utilities with 200,000 to 340,000 man hours worked. This recognition reflects KEYS’ commitment to protecting workers’ safety, while also ensuring reliable electric service to the customers. In an industry where there is a high possibility of serious injuries and fatalities, safety training is the best line of defense in preventing accidents and saving lives.

Awards were presented at the FMEA Annual Safety and Florida Lineman’s Competition Awards banquet in Tallahassee. The banquet was the culmination of two days of safety workshops and technical training on various safety and training issues facing the utility industry.

FMEA represents the unified interests of 32 public power communities across the state, which provide electricity to more than two million of Florida’s residential and business consumers.
