SAFETY

Safety Business Group
The management team and leadership committee meet quarterly to review incidents and disciplinary actions, creating policy and processes to advance the Safety Program and develop training.
 
Foreman Meetings
Monthly/weekly, Foreman meetings are held to review the progress of the program, train on areas of safety and health, and present safety meeting and job site audits. Each project from start is reviewed by the safety coordinator and a safety mitigation plan is developed, each individual working on that project is brought up to speed on the job site hazards and plans are developed to mitigate these potential safety hazards.
 
Employee Disciplinary Warnings
It is our policy to document all employee violations of our safety policy and to coach and correct the individual’s behavior. “Say it when we see it” is the motto which creates a consistent pattern of compliant behavior. From Management to material handlers we are ALL involved in the process to ensure that the behavior is corrected.
 
Incident Investigations
Every incident is investigated by our safety director, from complaints of pain to the more serious. Our intent is to seek root causes and to prevent reoccurrences. All injured employees are subject to Drug and Alcohol Screening at the discretion of the safety director and leadership committee.

  • RARE Electric encourages continuing education for all employees, from field to administrative to management personnel.
  • Each job classification has a minimum competency level and with that, a different amount of training. Rare Electric invests most heavily in our field supervision, who have been trained in our policy’s and OSHA standards. All new hires receive an orientation that covers all policies and procedures for safety, they must agree and sign the safety policy prior to being employed.
  • Safety is also communicated as the responsibility of each employee. Active participation and adherence to the safety policies is a condition of each employee’s employment. We have and will continue to maintain a safety and health program designed to train our employees to follow safe practices, recognize and correct unsafe working conditions. No employee is required to work at a job that he or she knows is unsafe.
