Donation on behalf of ML&P Plant 2A project employees to recognize safety milestone

ANCHORAGE, AK—Dec. 22, 2014 – To recognize worker safety, Quanta Services Companies and workforce representatives on the Municipal Light & Power Plant 2A Expansion Project issued a $10,000 check to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention at a safety-recognition meeting last week.

A donation selection committee was formed last fall with broad representation from the trades working on the project, according to Stinson. With this award, Quanta Services Companies have donated $30,000 to nonprofits in Anchorage selected by the workforce, including previous awardees the American Cancer Society and Bean’s Café.

Robert Stinson, Price Gregory Senior Vice President, explained that the donations and lunches are a way for the project team to recognize and thank workers for their attention to the safety program and their focus on workplace safety.

AFSP Alaska Chapter Board Chair Dennis Lasley and volunteer Jamie Miller were on hand to accept the award from the workforce selection committee.

“We are very grateful,” said Lasley. “I couldn’t believe it when we received the call. We will use the funds to educate all Alaskans about suicide prevention.”

Stinson also gave a special Safety Leadership Award to Justin Sonnentag, a Price Gregory foreman. More than half of the workforce had nominated him for going “above and beyond” with regard to his leadership in the Project’s Safety Program.Quanta Power Generation, Price Gregory International, M.J. Electric and their parent corporation, Quanta Services, Inc., have formed a cohesive team to provide the engineering, procurement and construction of the George M. Sullivan Plant 2 Generation Replacement Project for Anchorage Municipal Light & Power. The project is currently on track to meet its scheduled completion date in 2016.
