At Northern Electric, Inc. safety is not a just a word, but a state of mind. Our safety program starts with upper management’s commitment, which streams down through all of our employees. To give our customers the highest quality installation and ensure the safety of all our employees, we invest in only the best equipment and training available. Regardless of size or importance, there is no job too important that it cannot be done in a safe manner.
Focused on employee training, detailed safety communication, a culture looking out for one another and our commitment to zero at risk behaviors we achieve our goal to be incident and injury free and remain an industry leader in safety. We don’t work safely to be compliant; we do so because of our deep belief in the idea of no incidents or injuries so everyone goes home at the end of the day. We recognize the elevated risk of unsafe practices from newly hired workers, because of this all new hires have to complete our extensive Safety Orientation Program. We are dedicated to proper use of NFPA 70E policies and procedures, the proper use of tools and equipment, and fall protection. Due to our continued commitment to safety over the last 20 plus years we have proudly earned an average EMR of 0.75.
