ReGenerate Stratton Celebrates Safety Milestones

The ReGenerate Stratton facility in Stratton, Maine recently celebrated two safety milestones. On January 24, 2024, the facility celebrated four years without an OSHA recordable injury. On February 1, 2024, the facility reached nine years without an OSHA lost time injury.

ReGenerate Stratton is a 48-megawatt power facility located at 27 Fox Farm Road in the village of Stratton, ME and town of Eustis, ME. It uses woody biomass as its fuel and has the capacity to produce approximately 355,000 net megawatt-hours of electricity each year — enough to supply about 46,000 homes. A portion of ReGenerate Stratton’s electricity is sold to the adjacent Stratton Lumber mill, while the balance is supplied into the regional electricity grid. It employs 26 local workers.

“I am proud of the team’s efforts and commitment to staying focused, building a strong safety culture, looking out for one another, and following policies and procedures,” said Regional Manager Mark Thibodeau.  “I am particularly grateful for our shift supervisors, who serve as our front-line safety leaders and set the tone for every day shift and night shift.”

Thibodeau said that ReGenerate as a company has a robust safety program that includes regular Safety Committee meetings; procedures to raise suggestions and concerns; behavior-based safety observations; safety communication notices; risk assessment and mitigation; monthly inspections; and an incentive compensation system.
