Klein Tools Electrician of the Year 2017
Congratulations to Klein Tools Electrician of the Year 2017, Jimmy Ferris! Jimmy is a high-voltage substation electrician with Sacramento’s Municipal Utility District in Calfornia. What set him apart is his work in the area of safety where he has led executive-level safety presentations. His work with the joint labor/management committee saw a 1-year drop in preventable injuries from 27 down to 7. Members of the community describe Ferris as selfless and generous with company recognition for his commitment to others.
With 3 hurricanes hitting the US and its territories this season, many of us are extremely grateful for the work the guys do on their home grids and the time they take moving into disaster areas for power restoration.
