Genera Energy Celebrates Four Years Accident Free

Leading biomass supply company marks safety milestone, recognizes employees for their contributions

VONORE, Tenn. Jan. 23, 2015 -- Genera Energy Inc., a leading biomass supply company that supplies biomass feedstocks for the advanced biofuels, biopower, and biochemical industries, recently celebrated 1,533 days, or 4 years, without an accident.


To celebrate this important achievement, the company hosted a dinner for employees and presented them with jackets to recognize their diligence in helping maintain its accident free status.

"We believe it is extremely important to recognize everyone on our team for their efforts to maintain an accident free workplace," said Kelly Tiller, President and CEO. "It takes deliberate effort from everyone in the company to ensure the safety of themselves and each other."

Genera's turn-key biomass supply chain management services involve performing industrial agricultural production, harvesting, transport, milling, and material handling operations. While agriculture has long been recognized as one of the most dangerous industries, recent U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data show that Genera's core operations intersect three of the 10 most deadly occupations in the U.S.

"From long hours working with heavy industrial and farm equipment to fine milling dust exposure to agricultural chemical exposure, operating safely requires constant focus and attention from all employees," said Keith Brazzell, Chief Operating Officer.

To aid in the continuation of its accident free status, Genera has implemented policies and procedures that encourage all employees to participate in the safety program and to ensure compliance. These programs include:

Weekly Safety Audits

Safety Incentive Programs and Rewards

Near-Miss Reporting

Department Safety Committees

Continuing Education

Company-Wide Monthly Safety Training

Required Employee Training

Hazard Assessments

"The critical factor in our success of maintaining our accident free status has been having employees directly involved in not only safety training but identifying safety concerns and potential hazards," said Clay Dye, Project Manager. "By identifying these issues and resolving them, we are constantly working towards improving our processes to maintain the safety of our employees and operations."
