Federal Columbia River Power System Awards 2014

Lower Granite: Project Maintenance Team

Lower Granite’s maintenance crew had an excellent year, setting an internal project record, of only six forced outages, with a combined outage time of less than seven days in 2014.
This has earned them the Federal Columbia River Power System’s Team Excellence Award.
Critical project management completion rate hovered around 99 percent.
The crew achieved a safety record of zero lost time accidents and only one accident requiring medical treatment.
This represents a notable accomplishment for a crew of about 30 working on a wide variety of industrial tasks in all weather conditions.

Ice Harbor: Project Safety Award

Safety is the Federal Columbia River Power System’s most important performance metric and the number one priority for all three agencies of the FCRPS. This award goes to the FCRPS plant that has accrued the most labor hours since its last lost time accident.
Ice Harbor has gone since August of 2012 without a lost time accident, safely accruing more than 260,000 person-hours of labor, more than any other plant in the FCRPS.
In addition to its regular weekly tool-box safety meetings, Ice Harbor has begun quarterly ‘all-hands’ safety meetings and weekly safety meetings just for operators, as well as posting safety statistics in the powerhouse for its crews to see.FCRPSLogoColorRoundLarge
