At APS, our commitment to safety and security is fundamental to our business. Our safety and security efforts focus on six main areas: employee safety, public safety, cybersecurity, data privacy, physical security and the implementation of Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) requirements.
Educating the public about electrical safety is another important component of our safety work. We reach thousands of Arizonans each year with our public safety programs, including our electrical safety trailer presentations in which line workers show first-hand what contact with electricity can do to a hot dog “hand” or grapefruit “head.”
To increase safety and security throughout our operations, we implement new tools and technologies, train our workforce and develop solutions to reduce physical and cyber threats. We also partner with our industry peers and government agencies to share information and reduce potential exposure to risk.
