Employees spoke, and Basin Electric’s BE Well Committee listened.

Based on employee feedback following last year’s Safety & Wellness Week, the committee decided to spread out safety-oriented and healthy activities throughout the entire month of June 2017.

Some events included in this year’s Safety & Wellness Month included healthy meals in the cafeteria, hearing screenings, massages, free bicycle tune-ups, and presentations on topics such as healthy cooking, foot pain, mental health, and insomnia.

“We have heard a lot of positive feedback so far,” said BE Well Committee Chair Nicole Perreault. “We hope we were able to provide employees many opportunities to learn and be inspired through this year’s safety and wellness activities.”
