Tenaska’s safety record is among the best in the energy industry. Our experienced and dedicated workforce has built a legacy of safety that goes beyond regulatory compliance and has been recognized numerous times for safety achievements. Four Tenaska-operated plants have been recognized as Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) Star Worksite, which is the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) highest designation for safety performance. These accolades are achieved through safe engineering design, constant vigilance, ongoing training and continual improvement of internal safety programs. Our commitment to safety starts in the control room and on the plant site well before any daily task is considered.
We manage operations for approximately 8,000 megawatts (MW) of natural gas-fueled and renewables generation, with direct oversight of safe, efficient and reliable generation of 7,700 MW at nine facilities in seven states. Two Tenaska-operated facilities have had zero worked-related illnesses or injuries resulting in days away from work since the start of commercial operations.
Tenaska plant employees undergo annual safety training ranging from basic hazard awareness to emergency drill simulations with local response agencies that further bolster the company’s safety culture. They continuously review plant safety procedures and strive to develop new opportunities for safe practices through equipment and behavior modifications. Regular employee meetings heighten safety awareness.
