Our electricians work in dangerous situations with dangerous materials among dangerous hazards. For them, safety is not a slogan or a job site banner. It is a constant awareness that every task they take on comes with risk, and it’s up to them from the supervisor to the foreman, from the journeyman to the apprentice, to make sure that they safely return home at the end of the day. EC staffs an Environmental Health and Safety field team that constantly moves between EC job sites and offices training, managing compliance, assessing risk, and monitoring safety.
EC Electric’s safety culture can be summarized with three letters: IFE. An Incident Free Environment (IFE) is the culture that EC promotes company-wide.
Safety awareness is woven into the daily operations of every worker and every crew at every site. Routines like Stretch & Flex, Pre-task Planning, Toolbox Talks, on-site safety team visits, and ongoing training all contribute to an Experience Modification Rate (EMR) that is consistently below the national average for workplace safety.
