Arkansas Electric Cooperatives, Inc. (AECI) employees Dustin Denton, manager of right-of-way services, and Mark Jackson, construction crews safety coordinator, recently completed an intensive program in electric utility safety and loss control.

Denton and Jackson are among a select group of electric utility professionals who have earned the safety and loss control certification from the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA), in conjunction with the National Utility Training Safety & Education Association (NUTSEA).

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), nearly 4 million workplace injuries occur each year. A goal of NRECA’s certified loss control program is to ensure a safe work environment for electric utility workers and the public.
