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

In April 2018, NRECA, Federated Rural Electric Insurance Exchange and electric cooperative statewide safety leaders introduced the Commitment to Zero Contacts initiative, which is designed to provide cooperative CEOs, senior leaders, and field personnel with ideas and resources to help them reduce the chance of serious injuries and fatalities (SIFs) due to electrical contact and enhance co-op safety efforts. 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 voluntary re-commitment to the initiative’s goals and thousands of co-op employees have downloaded safety resources available in the Commitment to Zero Contacts: Toolkit.
