NECA Recognition of Safety Achievement Program

NECA's Safety Recognition program include two categories, Safety Excellence, and the Zero-Injury Achievement.

NECA’s Recognition of Safety Achievement program is an elite safety recognition focused on recognizing thriving companies that excel in multiple areas of their safety and health programs.  Member companies that consistently have OSHA recordable injury and fatality rates at levels lower than the industry standard, and implement internal company safety practices above and beyond basic compliance will receive the recognition.

The Zero-Injury recognizes those member-companies that have worked a full calendar year without recordable incidents. 

The Safety Excellence is the associations premier recognition program, and acknowledges member-contractors safety performance. When registering contractors will automatically be entered into two Safety Recognition Programs; Zero Injury and Safety Excellence. Winners are selected based on their comparison to BLS data and electrical contractors.
