The National Safety Council (NSC) recently honored the Tenaska Ferndale Cogeneration Station with the Safety Leadership Award for achieving the best safety performance for five consecutive years with no work-related injuries or illnesses resulting in time away from work.
This is the sixth consecutive year in which Tenaska Ferndale employees have received the leadership award.
“Achieving a safe operating record is not just a matter of good luck, it’s a matter of teamwork, good planning, continued training and concentration,” said Tim Miller, plant manager. “Our employees are very pleased to once again be recognized by the National Safety Council. They make safety a priority every day, year after year. It shows when our plant is recognized as being among the safest in the nation.”
Tenaska Ferndale employees were also recipients of the NSC Occupational Excellence Award. The Occupational Excellence Award honors employees at the plant for operating without an occupational injury, illness or fatality during the 2008 calendar year. Also in 2008, employees at the Tenaska Ferndale Cogeneration Station were awarded the nation’s highest safety honor, receiving designation as a Voluntary Protection Programs Star Worksite.
