At NRG, safety always comes first. We embrace safety with an ultimate goal of zero injuries and a focus on preventative safety practices. We focus on working safely every day and practicing the behaviors that ensure a safe workplace. NRG has safety policies and procedures for both employees and contractors.
The great news: For the third consecutive year in 2012, NRG achieved both a new company record for the lowest rate of safety incidents and top decile lowest recordable rate in the Edison Electric Institute’s survey of industry safety results. However, we believe that every employee should go home exactly the same way they came to work. That means NRG will not reach our true safety goal until there are zero injuries, which is why we are increasing attention on areas like office safety that have not traditionally received as much focus. As of December 2012, NRG has 11 facilities that have achieved Voluntary Protection Program Star status, OSHA’s official recognition of the outstanding efforts of employers and employees who have achieved exemplary occupational safety and health practices.
