Wyoming lineworkers honored for achieving top safety record

July 12, 2019

CASPER, Wyo. — This week Rocky Mountain Power honored Wyoming lineworkers for achieving top safety records with a grant to the charity organization of their choice.

Wyoming Wires, which includes the company’s lineworkers and substation personnel across the state, held the top record for safety in their category among the three Rocky Mountain Power states. 

 “Safety is not a one-person job. It takes everyone, in step, with a common vision and purpose to keep each other safe,” said Tom Davis, safety director for Rocky Mountain Power. “This is an exciting accomplishment for Wires and it honors their outstanding teamwork and professionalism.”

The team selected the Casper Humane Society as their organization of choice to receive the $1,000 award.​

"It takes $30,000 a month to keep our doors open at the shelter and at any given time we are taking care of 125 cats and kittens," said Sally Reinhart, Casper Humane Society board president. "So things like this really help and we appreciate it very much."

Employees at Naughton Power Plant in Kemmerer and Bridger Coal Company near Rock Springs were also recently honored for achieving the top safety performance in their operational categories of generation and mining.
