Our Safety Measures

At Piper Electric we value the life and health of each employee. Through this, we instill a safety culture in each employee. Safety is brought to the forefront of everyone’s mind & behaviors through a strong commitment to communication, cooperation, coaching, and training. Safety thrives through participation in job hazard analysis, daily safety observations, regularly scheduled safety meetings, and continuing education safety classes. Our employee-run safety committee continues to help create new ideas to problem solving and safety barriers from multiple levels in the company to ensure the safety of all employees in a very evolving industry. 

Working with any electrical system can be dangerous. Whether it’s equipment, human error, or any number of other variables it can threaten an electrician without warning.  At Piper Electric we appreciate the safety hazards inherent in the electrical industry, which is why we strive to go further than anyone to ensure the safety of our electricians and customers.

Our first, and most important, safety precaution is hiring the right people. All our electricians are licensed, background checked, and drug tested. They are experienced professionals who know how to work safely with electricity.  Our Industrial, Plant and Facilities team, in particular, draws on years of experience working with large-scale electrical systems to guarantee the safety of everyone involved.

The following courses are run by our dedicated Safety Director, who has numerous “Train-the-Trainer” certifications, oversees the training curriculum, and keeps our electricians current with the latest in industry safety policies and regulations.

Our Commitment to Safety 

A Safety Record of Success

Safety methods are measured by the Experience Modifier Rate (EMR). This measurement was originally developed by insurance companies in the early 1980s as safety became more of an issue nationally. Today, EMR is essentially the credit rating for measuring a company’s commitment to safety.

By this measure, the industry standard is 1.0. A company with a rating below 1.0 is demonstrating a strong commitment to safety. At Piper Electric, our EMR is consistently below 1.0 which demonstrates our exceptional commitment to safety and is verifiable evidence that safety is our priority and that our precautions and training work.
