Mountain View Electric Association, Inc. Earns Prestigious Safety Award
November 2, 2020, Falcon, CO – Mountain View Electric Association, Inc. (MVEA) recently received the No Lost Time Accidents Award from Colorado Rural Electric Association (CREA) for the 2019 year. The No Lost Time Accidents Award recognizes Colorado electric cooperatives whose employees worked the entire year without experiencing a lost-time accident.
“With nearly 150 MVEA employees, working throughout our 5,000 square mile service territory and in every working condition possible – blizzards, rain, record-breaking summer heat, mud, downed lines, not-so-friendly dogs, snakes, uneven ground terrain, and heavy traffic – this is a very impressive award to receive!” said Terryl Jensen, MVEA Operations Manager.
Safety is a top priority at MVEA. Employees adhere to stringent safety standards with the goal of returning to their families safely at the end of each day. Twelve out of the 22 Colorado electric cooperatives received the 2019 No Lost Time Accidents Award; MVEA last received the award in 2016.
“This award is a reflection of our employees’ commitment to MVEA’s culture of safety,” Jensen said. “It demonstrates the incredible job our employees are doing to watch out for one another.”
