The nearly 7,300 employees of the AEP Utilities group achieved something that’s never been done before – zero OSHA recordables for an entire month.

“While a month without a recordable event might not seem like much, it’s an impressive and historic accomplishment. This is a large group of employees who have high-risk jobs and work across a big span of geography often in difficult weather conditions,” said Bob Powers, executive vice president and chief operating officer.

“I commend our employees for their continued focus on safety. Moving forward, I urge everyone to avoid complacency, and encourage the continued use of our safety processes and tools to keep this safety success going.”

AEP Utilities is comprised of the following groups: 

  • AEP Ohio
  • AEP Texas
  • Appalachian Power
  • Kentucky Power
  • Indiana Michigan Power
  • Public Service Company of Oklahoma
  • Southwestern Electric Power Company
  • Customer Services, Marketing and Distribution Services

 

“This milestone illustrates that achieving Zero Harm is truly attainable for our workforce,” said Ken Frazier, vice president, Safety & Health. “This achievement moves us one step closer to keeping all our employees safe and healthy. Congratulations to the Utilities group for their commitment to Zero Harm.”
