Electrician in hard hat wiring building

There are no compromises in risk management. NECA contractors and IBEW make safety of paramount importance.

We recognize project owners and general contractors do as well. So our workforce is Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) 10 and 30 and, when needed, trained to meet Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) standards. Our contractors have earned numerous safety awards from project owners and organizations such as the American Subcontractors Association.

Every project we perform provides the opportunity to improve safety in the electrical industry.  On projects that can be swarming with other trades to complete an accelerated schedule, our contractors and workforce are well trained in best practices to effectively manage safety, including:

  • Electrician working on electrical linesFollowing lock out/tag out protocols to avoid contact with energized installations.
  • Steadfastly using tie offs and securing lanyards in elevated work.
  • Policing sites to remove tripping hazards and other risks
  • Properly placing spotters for crane lifts of heavy equipment such as generators, transformers and switchgear.
  • Properly using safety gear including safety glasses, gloves, hard hats, biohazard protection and more
  • Training in MSHA safety protocols for work underground
  • Following confined space protocols and trench safety.

Above all, IBEW/NECA embraces a philosophy of safety that holds everyone accountable so workers can return home safe from construction projects every day.
