Hard Hat Safety Award

AMP established the Hard Hat Safety Award to recognize an employee in each member community who demonstrates safety at all times.


  • Members can nominate one employee from their electric distribution department.
  • Members with generation can also nominate one employee from their electric generating division.


An electric utility employee who:

  • Adheres to on-the-job safety procedures
  • Promotes electric safety within their department
  • Is 100% safety conscious


  • Recipients are nominated by the municipal electric system’s director or superintendent and approved by the AMP safety staff.
  • More than one award can be given each year.
  • A plaque will be presented to the individual recipient at a safety meeting in their community.
