Recently I was given the opportunity to write and photograph a story for Oklahoma Living Magazine titled “Creating a Culture of Safety”. Basically I was to tell how Oklahoma electric cooperatives work to instill safety into all aspects of their operations, especially in regards to line work, which is inherently dangerous. I was able to interview several safety training officials at a number of coops as well as the state offices of OAEC.
As a journalist I love these opportunities to learn more and write on subjects I am not necessarily familiar with, but interested in. Luckily the story turned into a feature and cover story. It is always a pleasure working with the Oklahoma Living staff and especially the people at Oklahoma’s electric cooperatives.
