IECRM: Committed to Keeping Safety at the Forefront for Members

IECRM makes safety one of its core values so that members can keep themselves, their workers, and their businesses healthy and safe. To keep safety at the forefront with its members, IEC and IECRM have developed a top-notch safety program.

We encourage every IECRM electrical contractor member — small or large — to evaluate their Workplace Safety practices and performance by entering a Summit Awards Safety Award nomination

Those companies achieving a high score within their safety program will be named finalists to compete for IECRM’s Summit Award for Safety Excellence. The winner of this prestigious award will be presented at the Annual IECRM Summit Awards Ceremony on Thursday, April 29, will then receive special coaching to prepare and submit to the IEC National SPARK Safety Awards.

 Submissions are due March 22, 2021 by 5pm MT. Click here to submit a nomination.  

Finalists will be interviewed by Safety professionals March 25 – April 2.  The winner will be announced at the 15th Annual Summit Awards on Thursday, April 29th.

IEC has developed many safety-related tools and resources, such as the Toolbox Talks, the Jobsite Safety Handbook and the Safety Manual Guidelines, which help IEC members train their workers to become knowledgeable about safety and help reduce injuries on the jobsite. To learn more about these tools and resources, please visit the IECRM Members Resources webpage.

IEC has formed an Alliance with the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to help prevent workplace injuries, illnesses and fatalities. Together with OSHA, IEC helps develop compliance assistance tools, spreads communication to the electrical industry on workplace hazards and hazard prevention, and promotes involvement in OSHA’s cooperative program.
