CLP names First Solar as 2011 Safety Partner of the Year

CLP Resources Inc of Reno, NV, USA (a subsidiary of TrueBlue Inc) has named First Solar Inc of Tempe, AZ, USA, which makes cadmium telluride (CdTe) thin-film photovoltaic (PV) modules and provides engineering, procurement & construction (EPC) services, as its 2011 Safety Partner of the Year in honor of its commitment to safety, extraordinary safety record, and safety partnership efforts.

CLP is celebrating its 25th year as what is said to be the USA’s leading supplier of skilled tradespeople to commercial, industrial and institutional building contractors. The firm recognized 18 customers across the country as its 2011 Safety Partners from among the thousands it worked with last year, and First Solar ranked first nationally, based on hours worked, hours between incidents, overall safety performance of CLP’s employees on the customer’s jobsite, and safety culture.

“Having a workforce that is knowledgeable and safe is imperative, and something we take very seriously,” says Eric Feinberg, VP of strategic markets at CLP. “First Solar joins us in our commitment to safe workplaces and has consistently proven that safety is one of their highest priorities,” he adds.

“‘Safety First’ tops the list of First Solar’s core values, so we’re proud to be recognized for what we have achieved,” says Jim Lamon, senior VP of engineering, procurement & construction (EPC) at First Solar. “It’s great to work with firms like CLP that share our uncompromising commitment to safety in everything we do.”
