Gas Department Earns National Safety Award


The City of Lawrenceville Gas Department has received the American Public Gas Association’s (APGA) Safety Award for 2018. This Safety Award is presented to a select group of natural gas providers who have maintained the highest performance standards and safety records for their respective categories. Standards are based on a calculation of man-hours worked and hours lost to injury. 2018 marks Lawrenceville’s fourth consecutive year for receiving this prestigious national recognition.

Receiving the award from Mayor Judy Jordan Johnson (far right) are representatives from the City of Lawrenceville Gas Department: James Parr, Josh Morris, and Todd Hardigree.

“To be the recipient of this award for the fourth consecutive year shows a consistent focus on safety, reliability and performance,” said Chuck Warbington, City Manager. “A strong emphasis on safety keeps our gas professionals in the field, providing the quality service that our taxpayers and utility customers deserve and we applaud their efforts!”

Barry Mock, Director of Public Works, added, “There is little margin for error when it comes to safety in the utility industry. We are privileged to be continually recognized for our commitment to this crucial factor in the work environment and grateful to Todd Hardigree – gas department director – and his team for demonstrating such responsible leadership in the work place.”

The Mayor and Council recognized the members of the Gas Department for this award and their continued dedication to safety at the City Council meeting on October 1.
