Ensuring the safety of our people–whether employees or contractors–is an essential and core component of our commitment to safety. Our company has been on a journey to world-class safety for years. In 2017, we launched our latest five-year initiative that included the addition of a vice president of Safety to Tampa Electric's leadership team and several of the programs listed below.
Through these efforts, along with our team's relentless pursuit of cultivating and growing a "speak up for safety" culture across Tampa Electric, we are on the path to achieve our goal of eliminating all injuries from our workplace–with 2020 being one of our best safety-performance years ever.
Our team is always working to increase our safety culture and minimize potential risks for our employees and contractors. As part of our ongoing effort to be continually improving, our team is developing several new safety initiatives, including a new safety incident reporting tool, adoption of a Soft-Tissue Injury Prevention Program, Public Safety Communication Initiative, a comprehensive review of how we plan high risk and critical work and more.
In addition, we have instituted a Contractor Safety Management Program that is specifically for contractors. This program provides a companywide standard for contractor management practices that provides guidance to team members who manage contracts and/or contractors to ensure safe completion of work, clear accountabilities, active engagement of contractors, and a consistent and structured approach to contractor health and safety.
When contractors are working on behalf of Tampa Electric, the program establishes safety expectations, provides information regarding potential hazards, and covers specific Tampa Electric safety requirements.
