Focusing on Zero

During National Safety Month, we reflect on our commitment to safety

SafetyZero_lgAt Luminant, safety is always our top priority and zero injuries is always the goal. We live by a commitment to Safety Zero, which means zero incidents, accidents, injuries, near misses and zero acceptance for unsafe acts and behaviors.

Achieving zero doesn’t just happen. It requires a collective commitment of every employee, according to Cliff Watson, Luminant vice president of power services.

“Safety Zero is not just a catchy campaign slogan. It is our culture, our commitment and our number one priority at Luminant – above everything else,” Watson said. “Over time, our employees have embraced the Safety Zero culture and are achieving top safety performance by using human performance improvement tools and performing their jobs as true professionals – the Luminant Way.”

Thanks to their steadfast commitment to zero, Luminant employees across the company recently achieved numerous significant safety milestones:

As a company, Luminant also marked its safest year in history in 2015, due in large part to the safety record of the mining team.

MSHA 2015“This level of safety excellence is a testament to our employees’ sustained commitment to achieve Safety Zero,” said Michael Barley, Luminant safety manager. “While June is celebrated as National Safety Month, we live each day with safety top of mind. We’re continuously striving for zero and we look for opportunities for further strengthen our safety culture.”
