At Tampa Electric, our core value is the safety of our people, our customers and our community. As part of our commitment to a world-class safety culture in everything we do, our team is focused on ensuring the safety and reliability of our power plants. We follow all federal, state and local regulations and best practice guidelines for power system management and operation and are continually refining our company's own policies and work practices to the make sure we are exceeding the industry standard for safety in our power plants.
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.
