As a business, our number-one priority is to send our people home to their families at the end of the work day. At Atlas / Pellizzari Electric, we take safety very seriously and invest significantly in education, awareness programs, protective processes, safety equipment, continual support and teamwork. Our low injury rating and Experience Modification Rate (EMR) are the rewards of constant vigilance, even as we challenge ourselves with larger and more-complex projects.
Every Atlas / Pellizzari employee is 100% committed to the goal of completing each project with zero accidents. We take these steps to make sure we achieve it:
- All the necessary safeguards, programs, and equipment are put in place to adhere with regulations and greatly reduce the potential for injuries.
- Before each project, the construction team does a safety orientation to discuss project-specific risks and preventive measures.
- Weekly “tailgate” meetings are conducted to remind all employees of the paramount importance of safety, and the necessity of every individual’s buy-in.
- All Atlas / Pellizzari project supervisors maintain safety training certifications organized by industry partners including OSHA, NECA and IBEW.
