In 2019 NECA established the NECA Safety Ambassadors Medal to recognize a NECA member that exemplifies superior performance in the area of workplace safety by providing effective and outstanding leadership, support, and recognition to all employees that lead by example. In 2018, with the best record in the Safety Excellence and achieving ZERO Injuries in addition to achieving the best in class OSHA statistics, Forest Electric Corporation has excelled, and is an excellent example of consistently managing safety as a core value and an integral part of the electrical contracting business.
The NECA Safety Ambassadors Medal recipient is selected for achieving a superior safety performance in both of the NECA Recognition of Safety Achievement Programs. This cumulative score is based on an overall point system for having injury and illness rates and an Experience Modification Rate (EMR) which were both by far better than OSHA and insurance minimum industry standards. Achieving the 2019 NECA Safety Ambassadors Medal, Forest Electric Corporation has demonstrated a significant safety commitment and has upheld the highest of level of safety standards during 2018.

This exemplary performance is held in high regard among all NECA members that also strive for world class safety in all their projects.
