Safety & Training


The S.T.A.R. (Stop. Think. Awareness. Responsibility.) SafetyProgram moved into its fourth year of existence with the goal for each employee to be safe at work and at home.

Continuous Improvement Team 5 unveiled an improved near miss reporting process in February.

“A near miss reported today, could save a life tomorrow,” is Team 5’s motto. It is used to encourage all employees to be vigilant, keep lines of communication open and do their part to keep our employees and members safe.

Continuous Improvement Team 6 launched the “Slips, Trips and Falls” prevention program in September. Results have been excellent, as no slips, trips or falls have led to a lost-time incident since the program was launched.


Texas Electric Cooperatives and Sam Houston EC continued their training partnership as the Co-op hosted six training classes at our training site near Livingston in 2018. The classes brought more than 125 line technicians from across the state for the week-long classes.

Several employees received switch trainingin conjunction with Entergy Corporation. Those employees are now certified tooperate certain switches during large power outages, which facilitates faster power restoration.

Members of the Livingston Police Department provided active shooter training and educated our employees about credit card skimming fraud techniques being used by criminals at area gas stations.

Each Sam Houston EC employee averagedmore than 40 hours of training. Our employees recorded more than 7,700 training hours in 2018. It reflects ourcommitment to operating safely, keeping your energy costs down and providing reliable service.
