( Clarkesville)- There are a wide variety of jobs performed at Habersham EMC, but none of them are exempt
from the dedication to safety. From the linemen to member services and everyone in between,
the almost 100 employees at HEMC all play a unique role in maintaining a safe work

HEMC is celebrating its third consecutive year with no lost time accidents.

“Our employees take pride in their jobs, regardless of their duties, knowing our members and
communities rely on our services,” says Jason Rothell, Manager of Safety and Loss Control with
Habersham EMC. “We are extremely proud of the HEMC team and each employee’s
commitment to performing their duties with safety being of the utmost importance.”

In addition to employee safety being the number one priority on the job site and in the office,
HEMC promotes a culture of safety that goes beyond the goal of an injury-free workplace. The
co-op nurtures an environment where concern for employee’s health, safety, and welfare
extends beyond the walls of the office and job sites into the community. HEMC is committed to
providing training, proper tools, personal protective gear, and time to do their jobs safely.

“Regardless of working conditions, safety remains the top priority. My goal is that each and
every employee make it safely home to their families –each and every night.” says Rothell.
“Reaching milestones such as this is reflective of the safety focus of HEMC’s Board of Directors,
CEO, managers, and every employee.”
