Southeastern Electric Exchange (S.E.E.)
recognizes PPL Electric with Industry Excellence Awards for safety
and supply chain innovations
ALLENTOWN, Pa., July 5, 2022
/PRNewswire/ -- PPL Electric Utilities is proud to announce it has
won a pair of Industry Excellence Awards from Southeastern Electric
Exchange (S.E.E.) for innovations in both employee safety processes
and supply chain management. The awards were presented at S.E.E.'s
annual conference on June 29.
"Innovating for the future is a major focus," said PPL Electric
Utilities President Steph Raymond.
"Whether that's finding new ways to increase organizational safety,
bolster efficiencies through supply chain management or pioneering
a new technology. These awards showcase how our continued efforts
translate into benefits for our employees and customers."
Safety is a core value for PPL Electric. And despite having the
two safest years in its history in 2017 and 2018, the company
continued to look for ways to increase overall safety within the
organization. This led to the development of a safety-focused
leadership training program that provides mentoring skills and a
forum to discuss all aspects of safety incidents, regardless of
whether they resulted in injuries.
After a review of safety trends, PPL Electric found that engaged
leaders helped to reduce safety incidents by passing on knowledge
to both less experienced and new employees. Along with introducing
this new safety leadership program, the company created a process
for discussing safety incidents and launched quarterly learning
sessions that addressed key topics.
PPL Electric was also honored for a recent supply chain
management innovation. PPL Electric's supply chain organization
took over the storage and delivery of the utility's steel
structures in 2020. This move helped to reduce costs by 40 percent
and resulted in increased reliability and service for
Prior to taking over these processes, the company relied on a
third-party vendor to both store and deliver these structures. The
recent change has become an asset for PPL Electric and its
customers as steel structures are now stored within PPL Electric's
service territory and are available for quicker delivery when there
is an immediate need, leading to better customer service.

electricity to more than 1.4 million homes and businesses in
