Craig Station to celebrate over a million hours without loss-of-workday injuries

Tri-State Generation and Transmission’s Craig Station is celebrating more than 1 million hours without a lost-workday injury at a company event Tuesday.

That spans the time from September 2011 to April 2014.

“Nobody lost a full day off of work due to injury during that time,” said Rick Johnson, plant manager of Craig Station.

The company will celebrate with a presentation detailing how the team was effective in keeping the approximate 300 employees safe from injury followed by a barbecue.

While the company is presenting the plant a plaque that points out 1 million hours without injury, Craig Station actually surpassed that mark, Johnson said. They hit roughly 1.8 million of lost-workday injury-free hours, he said.

It’s worth noting, and Johnson said he’s excited.

“We’re pretty proud of it. It’s the employees, it’s not management that makes something like that happen,” he said. “As station manager, I think this really speaks highly of our employees.”

Senior Business Partner Plant Representative Stephanie Gibson said the recognition proves that Craig Station stands out as an employee-centric business.

“This accomplishment is huge and it’s not something most businesses can boast about,” she said. “It didn’t come at anything less than a total cooperation. This wouldn’t be possible without joint commitment. It was a partnership to get this and we’re really proud of everybody.”
