In 2019, NECA established the NECA Safety Ambassadors Medal to recognize one NECA contractor whose workplace safety is exceptional and effective. The award embraces a contractor’s outstanding leadership, support, and recognition to all employees, who emboldens others to emulate their practices. Since 2020, Milwaukee Tool has sponsored this distinguished award.
The 2022 NECA Safety Ambassadors Medal, sponsored by Milwaukee Tool, recognizes the NECA member that has the best record in Safety Excellence, that attains zero injuries, and that achieves the best in-class OSHA statistics of 2021. Main Lite Electric Company is this year’s recipient for their excellence in embracing safety as a core value to their organization and making safety an integral part of electrical contracting.
Main Lite Electric Company has received the NECA Safety Excellence Award in 6 of the previous 8 years, and it has been a leader in utility safety in representing outside line NECA contractors and the American Line Builders NECA chapter.
The NECA Safety Ambassadors Medal selects the recipient who demonstrates a superior safety performance in both of the NECA Recognition of Safety Achievement programs. The cumulative score is based on an overall point system for injury and illness rates and an Experience Modification Rate that exceed the OSHA insurance minimum industry standards. Achieving this year’s NECA Safety Ambassador’s Medal, Main Lite Electric Company has led in commitment to safety and maintenance, upholding the highest level of safety standards in 2021.
