Illinois American Water announced the Pekin District has gone over 7 years without experiencing any lost-time accidents.
“Safety is on our minds every minute of every day,” Cord Crisler, Illinois American Water’s Operations Superintendent, said “There is nothing more important than ensuring our employees go home in the same condition they arrived at work, if not better. We owe that to our coworkers and their families. There is no room for shortcuts when it comes to safety.”
Illinois American Water conducts both classroom and hands-on training on a regular basis. Employees also participate in facility and job site audits to ensure compliance with established workplace safety practices.
“Our safety record means a lot to our team,” Crisler added. “Safety is a daily focus. We continuously evaluate and act to remove hazards to prevent injuries.”
