In the world of electric work, every job comes with its own set of risks and safety challenges, from handling high-voltage equipment to working at tall heights. One of the biggest safety challenges a company may face is ensuring that their crews comply with safety rules and regulations. Workers may think of these rules as simply a good thing to keep in mind but forget them when they become inconvenient. However, at Taylor Electric, safety isn’t just a set of rules to follow or boxes to check—it’s at the center of everything we do.

As our safety manager Gerrit Moot states, “Everything we do is related to safety.” Our standard operating procedures for every job are written specifically to make sure we are compliant with OSHA, state, and federal regulations. However, our commitment to safety goes beyond mere compliance. Our company policies are designed to go above and beyond regulatory requirements to ensure the highest level of safety for our employees and customers.

Proactive Safety Measures

We believe in proactive measures to prevent accidents and injuries before they happen. That’s why we hold monthly safety meetings with our crews, where we discuss best practices, review any incidents, and reinforce the importance of safety on the job.

We conduct weekly on-site inspections to identify potential hazards and ensure that safety protocols are being followed. These inspections allow us to address any issues immediately and make necessary adjustments to keep our crews safe.

At Taylor Electric, we believe in working hands-on with our crew to make sure everyone is working safely. Our experienced supervisors provide guidance and support to our team members, emphasizing the importance of following safety procedures at all times. We encourage open communication among our staff, so everyone feels comfortable raising concerns and discussing safety measures.

One of the most critical aspects of ensuring safety on the job is using appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). From hard hats to safety goggles, our staff is equipped with the necessary gear to protect themselves from potential hazards. We regularly inspect and replace PPE to ensure that it meets safety standards and provides adequate protection.

Safety Training

On top of our regular safety measures, we invest in ongoing training and education for our staff. Our team members undergo rigorous training programs to stay updated on the latest safety protocols and techniques. This continuous learning ensures that our crew is well-prepared to handle any safety challenges that may arise on the job.

Since 1972, we have prided ourselves in always acting with integrity, which includes taking responsibility to prioritize safety above all else. We believe that by putting safety first, we can hold up to our core values, deliver exceptional service to our customers, and keep our team safe and healthy.

Working safely isn’t just a good thing to keep in mind; it’s the right thing to do. With our proactive safety measures, hands-on approach, and commitment to excellence, we ensure that every job is completed safely and efficiently.
