Phase 1: Re-Commit to Life-Saving Rules (Toolkit)

This first phase was a one-time re-commitment to the life-saving rules (LSRs) which co-ops utilize in their day-to-day operations. The goal was for co-op leaders and field employees to reflect on their personal utilization of the LSRs to help motivate a shift in behavior to eliminate shortcuts if needed. Since that time, hundreds of managers of electric co-ops and public power districts have made the volunary re-commitment to the initiative’s goals and thousands of co-op employees have downloaded safety resources available in the Commitment to Zero Contacts: Toolki​t.​

Phase 2: Assess Your Co-op’s Operational and Safety Practices

In the second phase of this initiative, NRECA, Federated and statewide safety managers are working on an approach for co-ops to utilize to assess their existing operational safety practices and make adjustments where necessary to help reduce the potential of future electrical contacts. Currently being piloted among co-ops across the country, the purpose of this assessment is to better understand their exposure to electrical contacts, to evaluate leading practices and to create a plan to minimize future risk as needed.

​Updates will follow as co-op pilots are completed and the process has been refined.
