Safety Presentations Postponed- The HTP committee and safety stewards had planned to see 2014 out with a last safety presentation sweep through Chico and Redding, but the effort was thwarted by bad weather. In all, the committee and safety stewards completed over 25 presentations in 2014. The safety talks ranged from as far South as Lompoc to Northern Nevada. Peer consultant John Kent will renew the presentation schedule in early 2015.
Casey Kelley Appointed New HTP Chairman- Liberty Utilities line crew foreman Casey Kelley will head the HTP committee for the year 2015. Casey has been a regular participant in many presentations and training programs for the committee and is a recent recipient of the Certified Utility Safety Professional Certificate earned at Local 1245 through the Utility Safety Leadership Operations Network.
