“The safety culture at Edison is a priority. It can be physical safety, whether I'm out in the field driving or I'm at work sites, being aware of my surroundings. It can also be if there are nails on the ground or if there's anything that can affect my safety or well-being. So you got to have a safety mindset at the forefront. The safety culture here runs deep and I appreciate it.”
