Pellet plant celebrates 365 days accident free

Pinnacle Renewable Energy celebrated 365 days of no workplace accidents on Wednesday, March 13th.


Pinnacle Renewable Energy plant celebrated safety last Wednesday evening, inviting all employees and several members of the community to partake in a cookout at the plant on Highway 17. The celebration was called for, as the plant had gone 365 days with no workplace accidents. General Manager Ritu Linhart introduced each of the team leaders, managers, and employees and recognized them for their role in achieving this milestone. The plant achieved the milestone on January 21st and has remained accident free since then, as well.

"Safety is a way of life. Safety is our value system and belief system that we live by at Pinnacle, as a company," Linhart said. "We are here to celebrate, not only having achieved a year without a reported accident, but to celebrate safety every day. At work, at home, in our community, with our families, and just everywhere we go. I'm just proud to be part of this family of people who value safety the same way that I do."

Linhart started working as general manager for Pinnacle on December 4, 2018 and said she was not aware of the ongoing streak of consecutive days without a workplace accident when she was hired.
