Welcome to the PNWS Safety Committee!

Welcome to the Safety Committee Home Page

The Section Safety Commmittee members collaborate to improve employee safety through regulations, training, equipment and industry-best-practices. Members come from large & small utilities; we share information, ideas, experience and resources to anyone looking to make a safer workplace. Safety performance and innovation awards are selected on a section and association level, most prestigiously the Wendell LaDue Safety Award in February.
