Safety

Our commitment to safety is uncompromising. It is a basic tenet of our operations and something that each employee must commit to before they can join our team.

Led by our in-house safety director, our leadership team takes direct responsibility for employee safety and the quality of our safety programs. Foremen are accountable for the jobs and the people they supervise. Employees take responsibility for their own safety and the safety of their fellow workers.

Our safety initiatives include:

  • Correcting potentially unsafe conditions and equipment before they produce injuries.
  • Identifying unsafe or incorrect employee work habits and correcting them.
  • Training and motivating all employees to work in a safe and conscientious manner.
  • Pre-planning jobs to comply with safety standards.

As a result of these efforts, Tri-City Electric Co. has received numerous safety awards and has exceptionally low insurance modification rates over the last decade – a cost savings we proudly pass along to customers.
