NECA's Recognition of Achievement in Safety Excellence and Recognition of Zero Injury Achievement
The National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) formally recognizes electrical contractors that adopt safety and health related work practices, as a core value, within their organization. Having the results that demonstrate this commitment is instrumental. NECA Recognition of Achievement in Safety Excellence and NECA Recognition of Zero Injury Achievement are elite safety recognition programs focused on the electrical construction industry, recognizing companies that excel in multiple areas of their safety and health programs.
About the Program
NECA Recognition of Achievement in Safety Excellence and NECA Recognition of Zero Injury Achievement recognize companies that thrive on maintaining OSHA recordable rates at levels lower than industry. Both programs seek to recognize companies that have taken safety above and beyond compliance.
The Zero-Injury recognizes those member-companies that have worked a full calendar year without recordable incidents.
