The City of Lawrenceville Gas Department has received the American Public Gas Association’s (APGA) Safety Award for the fifth consecutive year. This award is presented at the 2019 APGA Operations Conference 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.

“Keeping safety first continues to be the top priority for our gas professionals,” said Chuck Warbington, City Manager.  “To be a five-year national safety award recipient indicates five years of quality service to our taxpayers and utility customers.  Congratulations to all.”

Barry Mock, Assistant City Manager, added, “The utility industry demands safety at all times.  I am extremely proud of the Natural Gas Department, led by Todd Hardigree for its daily commitment to safety.  This award is well-deserved and a true team effort.”

The Mayor and Council recognized the members of the Gas Department for this award and their continued commitment to safety at the City Council meeting on November 13.  For additional information about the American Public Gas Association and the 2019 award winners, click here
