Ripley Power and Light Earns National Safety Award

Once again, Ripley Power and Light Co. has been recognized for making safety a top priority.

The utility earned the American Public Power Association’s Safety Award of Excellence for safe operating practices in 2022. 

“Safety needs to be the first thing on every utility employee’s mind as they go about their work,” said Jim Boyd, chair of APPA’s Safety Committee. “The utilities honored by APPA for excellence in this area should be proud of the culture they have instilled in serving their communities.” 

Nearly 300 utilities from across the country entered the annual Safety Awards. Entrants were placed in categories according to their number of worker hours. Utilities are then ranked based on incident-free records and the overall state of their safety programs and culture during 2022.  

“Ripley Power and Light cares deeply about sending our employees home to their families safely every single day,” said Mike Allmand, president and CEO. “We are proud to be honored for all the work that goes into standing behind this commitment.”
