Leeward Renewable Energy, LLC (LRE) today announced that it recently achieved over one million employee work-hours without a single Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recordable injury over a period of more than three consecutive years. This accomplishment reflects LRE's steadfast commitment to creating a safe and secure work environment for its dedicated team.
In alignment with OSHA guidelines, recordable injuries encompass incidents requiring medical treatment beyond initial aid, resulting in loss of consciousness, time off, restricted work, or job transfers. At LRE, safety is not just a priority; it is a fundamental value ingrained in every aspect of the Company’s operations.
“I am extremely proud of the LRE team for committing to our rigorous safety and health measures and making it a top priority,” said Jason Allen, LRE’s Chief Executive Officer. “This achievement underscores our genuine care for each other and our commitment to safety across our employee bases, both at our corporate offices and in the field. This is a tremendous milestone for our LRE employees. Ensuring the safety of our project sites and workplaces is critical to creating an environment where employees can thrive and contribute to the continued success of our rapidly growing renewable energy business."
LRE has implemented rigorous data collection and analysis and proactive safety reporting to continually improve its work environment and address potential hazards. Through its ‘Plan-Do-Check-Act’ framework, the company seeks to reduce the frequency and severity of accidents for its employees and contractors, with a target of zero workplace health and safety incidents and zero OSHA non-compliance exposures.
