Stay back and stay safe

Working with electricity can be a dangerous job, especi ally for lineworkers. In fact, USA Today lists line
repairers and installers among the most dangerous jobs in the U.S. That’s why for Woodruff Electric, safety is
the number one priority. This is not empty talk. Over time, we have created a culture of putting our crews’
safety and that of the community above all else.

Our mission is to provide safe, reliable and affordable e nergy to you, our consumer-members. Yes, we strive
to deliver affordable and reliable electricity to you, but equally important, we want our employees to return
home safely to their loved ones. This requires ongoing focus, dedication, vigilance and your help!

Distractions can be deadly.

While we appreciate your kindness and interest in the work of our crews, we ask that you stay back and let
them focus on their task at hand. Even routine work has the potential to be dangerous, and it takes their full
attention and that of their colleagues, who are also responsible for the team’s s afety. Distractions can have
deadly consequences. If a lineworker is on or near your property during a power outage, for vegeta􀀈on
management or for routine maintenance, please allow them ample room to work. These small
accommodations help protect our crews–– and you.

If you have a dog, try to keep it indoors while lineworkers are on or near your property. While most dogs are
friendly, some are defensive of their territory and can’t distinguish between a burglar and a utility worker.
Our crews work best without a pet “supervising” the job. We recognize that for your family’s safety, you
want to make sure only authorized workers are on or near your property.

Slow down and move over.
In addition to giving lineworkers some space while they are near your property, we also ask that you move
over or slow down when approaching a utility vehicle on the side of the road. This is an extra barrier of
safety to help those who help all of us.
