Exton, Pennsylvania — The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) has recognized more than 100 cable systems for their high level of safety within the workplace.
The awards are based on an organization’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recordable incident rate. The 85 Gold-Level Safety Award recipients all maintained a rate at or less than 50 per cent of the industry’s national rate. The 19 systems that earned a Silver-Level Award maintained a rate at or below 25 per cent of the industry’s national rate.
Each of the winning cable systems belonged to one of three MSOs — Charter Communications, Cox Communications and Comcast Cablevision. Charter tallied 43 gold-winning systems and seven silver-winning systems; Cox earned 23 gold winners and five silver winners; and Comcast garnered 19 gold winners and seven silver winners.
