Working together for a safer workplace. Teamwork is the key.

The risk for electrocution, falls, amputations broken bones, and strain injuries are just some examples of hazards many workers in the electrical power industry face every day.

Use key prevention methods, such as the following:

  • Accident prevention program.
  • Job hazard analysis.
  • Hazard assessment for PPE.
  • Fall protection work plan.
  • Training on hazards recognition and prevention.

Provide a safe work environment for workers to return home safe.

Preventive efforts make good business sense when you begin to consider the possible costs associated with a tragic incident. In addition to the immeasurable human costs (financial, physical, emotional burdens on families and communities) the financial, personnel, productivity, and even regulatory costs to a business will quickly add up.
