Anthony Salsberry, Central Valley Electric Cooperative journeyman/lineman, has been awarded the Long Rope Safety Award.

Salsberry was recognized by his peers as a leader in safety May 19 at the co-op’s monthly safety meeting.

Colleagues who nominated Salsberry for the award said, “Anthony’s commitment to safety, not only to himself but also to the safety of our entire crew, is well respected. He has always shown and set a positive and safe work ethic for others to follow. He is always ready for new obstacles and tries to keep the guys around him excited to progress in their careers.”

The Long Rope Safety Award is given to an individual who has a positive attitude toward training, communication, and safe work habits. They are a leader and continually demonstrate a culture of safety in a challenging industry. The award is dedicated to all linemen in New Mexico who have been killed or injured on the job.
