Clay Electric receives safety award

L-R Operations Manager Luke Johnson and CEO Ed VanHoose accepts the Safety Achievement Certificate from Jim Miles, AIEC Safety and Loss Manager.

Clay Electric Co-operative participates in a Rural Electric Safety Accreditation Program (RESAP) administered by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA). Policies, personnel procedures and work habits, equipment maintenance, and several other vital roles of the cooperative business are examined. Every three years, auditors inspect the operations and business practices of the cooperative.

Recently, such an audit was conducted by Jim Miles, Manager of Safety and Loss Control at the Association of Illinois Electric Cooperatives (AIEC) and personnel from other Illinois electric cooperatives. Areas of improvements, as well as positive and negative items, were pointed out and discussed. CEO Ed VanHoose said, “Safety is number one at Clay Electric. We want everyone to return home to their families at the end of the day.”
