September 2, 2020
American Electric Power (AEP) Transmission Construction recognizes top contract companies for their dedication to the pursuit of Zero Harm. Power Line Services (PLS) is honored to join AEP Transmission’s Zero Harm Club by reaching 69,000 consecutive man-hours worked without a First Aid or OSHA Recordable incident.
Last month, PLS received a safety recognition letter from AEP Transmission Construction Managing Director, Nathan Ball. He said, “Your team should be proud of achieving this milestone because it is not something that just happens. Maintaining health and safety on the job and at home is accomplished day-by-day, hour-by-hour, and task-by-task.” Ball continued, “Together, we can make a positive difference in the safety culture of our industry and move ever closer to our goal that everyone is safe at work and at home.”
AEP Transmission Construction’s safety goal of Zero Harm directly aligns with PLS’s safety values. As the company’s driving force, safety is ingrained in the way PLS employees live and conduct business.
“We are grateful to not only have such a great partnership with AEP Transmission Construction, but to also be recognized by them for our commitment and dedication to safe work practices,” said Nick Hebert, Power Line Services Vice President. “A project can only be successful if all parties value the same commitment to safety. As a leader in the electric power industry, AEP clearly values the safety of all teams on the utility’s construction projects as much as we do.”
Power Line Services is a leading provider of high voltage transmission, substation, and distribution construction and maintenance services. It is one of 11 leading energy-focused companies that are part of PLH Group, a North American full-service construction and specialty contractor that serves the electric power and pipeline markets.
