Safety

Safety is our number one priority. 

The culture of safety is ingrained in all employees; at all levels of the Cooperative. The Sioux Valley Energy board truly believes that safety should be second nature in the organization. That means when decisions are made in the boardroom, the safety of all employees and customers is always considered.

Sioux Valley Energy also expects employees to undergo a significant amount of safety training. In fact, apprentice lineworkers are required to have a one-year technical degree, must accumulate 8,000 hours of on-the-job-training, and need to complete and pass 10 tests a year. Journey lineworkers take part in all OSHA-required training courses. Ten months out of the year, all Sioux Valley employees attend a one-day safety meeting.

The cooperative also has a safety steering committee which reviews safety procedures and practices, conducts inspections of the worksite, responds to employee concerns, and helps prioritize safety issues for the cooperative.
