All safety records are documented and reported to the Human Performance & Safety Manager who ensures each employee meets PGE’s minimum safety training requirements. We also conduct regular on-site safety observations and ensure proper adherence to procedures.
Each year the Safety & Human Performance Manager evaluates safety objectives and creates an annual safety improvement plan based on safety observations.
Additionally, we conduct ongoing power plant safety training and competency checks with all employees and address individual specific safety concerns. Based on an individual’s evaluation, the Safety & Human Performance manager may require additional power plant safety training for any employee found to be in violation of PGE’s safety standards.
Power Grid Engineering promotes a culture where people are encouraged to do the right thing, share lessons learned when unexpected results occur and thrive in an environment with opportunities for improvement. To assess the health and effectiveness of our human performance culture, we’ve established four core areas of focus, also known as pillars of our business. These pillars include leadership, management and accountability (LMA), employee training and qualifications, systems and tools, and core processes.

In our efforts to achieve and sustain success, we model our operations according to the following guiding principles: Vision, people, data, issues, process and traction/progress.
All of our employees (new and existing) are required to complete our risk-based technical, safety, quality and human performance training which focuses on the expectations, procedures and tactics for delivering human performance excellence.
Systems and tools provide the facts for making sound, data-driven decisions and drives continuous process improvement. A significant investment has been made in this area to ensure work is performed in a consistent manner to prevent human error and mistakes.
