A leader in its commitment to safety within the construction industry, NECA understands that a safe site is the first and foremost priority of its construction firms. In an effort to enhance the prospect for its member electrical construction firms to establish the safest possible work environments, NECA Boston Chapter has taken a proactive role in the introduction of a Safety Services Program. By adhering to procedures that help ensure a safe site, contractors create healthier, more productive work environments for workers, decrease downtime and employee absences, and decrease the possibility of OSHA fines and costly litigation.
