Spencer Municipal Utilities celebrated Locator Safety Awareness Week (LSAW) June 19-25, 2016 to help remind all our employees to be safe.
A few things we did throughout the week to celebrate were: safety tips displayed on employee breakroom bulletin board, information in weekly employee newsletter and a card provided by Damage Prevention Professional to our employees who locate on a regular basis.
We also reminded customers to call 811 before they dig and to help our locators out by clearly marking the excavation area in white on our weekly radio interviews as well as recognizing our locators during the week on our Facebook page.
“It was a great week to remind employees of some important safety tips and we look forward to recognizing it again next year,” says Amanda Gloyd, marketing and community relations manager.
