Safety Recognition

Recognition plays an integral part in our safety and health efforts. In 2014, several business units and employees were recognized for extraordinary for their commitment to safety and health on and off the job.

AEP Chairman, President and CEO, Nick Akins, presents two employees from APCo’s Clinch River Plant a Chairman’s Life Saving Award in 2014.

AEP’s Chairman’s Life Saving Award recognizes employees who display extraordinary compassion for others in saving or attempting to save another person’s life without putting their own safety at risk. In all, nine employees received Chairman’s Life Saving Awards in 2014 across AEP.

AEP River Operations was recognized for having 38 vessels that operated for two full years or more without a crew member losing a full turn at watch because of an occupational injury. The Chamber of Shipping of America’s Devlin Award publicly recognizes the skills and dedication of the men and women who are responsible for safe ship operations. AEP’s River Operations received Devlin awards in 2014 for each of these vessels.
