Cooperative Light & Power (CLP) was recently recognized for excellence in workplace safety and health during the 2022 Minnesota Safety and Health Conference, May 3-4. CLP was one of 191 employers to be honored through the awards program, coordinated by the Minnesota Safety Council.
“During a time that has challenged all of us in many ways, we are honored to recognize Cooperative Light & Power for their award,” said Paul Aasen, President of the Minnesota Safety Council. “Congratulations to Cooperative Light & Power for helping to make life safer inside their organization and beyond.”
Since 1934, the annual Governor’s Safety Awards program has honored Minnesota employers with exceptional safety performance. Applicants are judged on several years of injury data as it compares with their industry’s national statistics and on their progress in implementing a comprehensive safety program. Winners are recognized at three levels:
- Meritorious Achievement (68 winners): Incidence rates that are better than the industry average for at least three years and a score between 50 and 74 on a 100-point safety program evaluation scale.
- Outstanding Achievement (83 winners): Continuing improvement and/or a continuing outstanding record with incident rates that are 51%-90% better than the industry average and a score between 75 and 90 on the safety program evaluation scale.
- Award of Honor (40 winners): Incidence rates at least 91% better than the industry average and a score between 91 and 100 on the safety program evaluation scale.
CLP received an Award of Honor.
The Minnesota Safety Council, founded in 1928, is a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life in Minnesota by preventing unintentional injuries on the road, at work, at home, and in the community.
