JOB TRAINING AND SAFETY

Electrical safety has long been a very high priority for Wisconsin's electric cooperatives. In addition to each cooperative carrying out its own safety and training programs, our statewide organization provides an intensive safety training program for electric cooperative employees.

The program, funded by the electric distribution cooperatives, is supported by generous financial contributions from Federated Rural Electric Insurance Exchange.

The JT&S program is operated by Dairyland Power Cooperative employees with oversight by a statewide committee of employees, managers and directors.

Electrical construction, maintenance and line operations have the potential to be a dangerous occupation. However, our JT&S program--as well as the diligence and care of our supervisors and employees--have kept on-the-job injuries and accidents low.

Wisconsin electric cooperatives participate in the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association's national Safety Achievement Program. These achievement certificates are difficult to obtain and reflect years of work and "doing things right" in electric operations.
