UNION, Ill., Jan. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Marking the specialty utility contractor's fourth departmental safety achievement in five months, INTREN's Midwest South (MWS) Tulsa, Okla., department reached one-year incident-free as of January 13, 2017. The department successfully completed 365 days of work without an OSHA-recordable or an at-fault utility damage.
"The Tulsa division has truly embraced the INTREN safety culture and the company's values and integrity," Account Manager Steve Littrell said. "Their drive and determination to do the work correctly and safely is what has allowed us to reach one-year incident-free."
The INTREN Tulsa department is working for a major utility to replace both primary and secondary network cable and repair/rebuild manholes and vaults in Tulsa's downtown underground network. To date they have removed over 16 miles of cable and installed over 10 miles of primary and secondary cable, while repairing 11 manholes and vaults. Upgrading the city's network cable system will provide improved electrical reliability and is part of a greater plan to bring about economic growth.
"The success of this division and the other divisions who have reached one-year incident-free in the past five months is due in part to the management INTREN has established," said Regional Vice President, Midwest Dennis Bednarski. "Littrell has excelled in leading our crews not only in Tulsa, but across the Midwest. His ability to identify talent and grow them as leaders is a major factor in our success."
