2018 VPPPA Conference

Last week, employees from Prairie State’s power plant attended the National VPPPA (Voluntary Protection Programs Participants’ Association) conference in Nashville, TN. Throughout the week, our employees attended workshops, meetings, and exhibits focused on integrated safety and health management systems. Paul Tesdall, Power Plant Shift Supervisor, presented at the conference on Prairie State’s Lock Out Tag Out (LOTO) procedure.

Since 2017, our power plant team has been working towards the goal of achieving “star site” certification under the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s Voluntary Protection Program (VPP). This is truly a team effort and we are proud to be able to sponsor our employees’ involvement in conferences such as this one.

Through these initiatives, Prairie State is enhancing its commitment to safety—for every person, at every level, every day.
