NECA Contractors and IBEW Electricians Lead the Way in Job Safety

“Every construction site has a different set of safety protocols due to COVID-19, and we’re adjusting accordingly,” said Neil Parish, NECA Michigan Chapter Executive Director.

Job sites are evolving as workers and business owners adopt new protocols that keep workers safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Prior to the pandemic, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and the National Electrical Contractors Association were already recognized as safety leaders in the electrical construction industry with a workforce that is trained to the highest possible standards. Now, they are leading the way in the industry as it navigates the pandemic.

NECA-affiliated business owners and IBEW 665 leaders are working closely to ensure the highest possible safety protocols are followed on all job sites. In fact, the unique labor-management partnership of the union electrical construction trade allowed the industry to quickly adapt to the pandemic and put new safety measures in place.

“Every construction site has a different set of safety protocols due to COVID-19, and we’re adjusting accordingly,” said Neil Parish, NECA Michigan Chapter Executive Director.

When construction work resumed after the Stay Home, Stay Safe order expired in early June, NECA-affiliated contractors were provided with a multipage COVID-19 Exposure Prevention, Preparedness and Response Plan that outlines the responsibilities of managers, supervisors and employees and the steps they must take to keep all parties safe at all times.

Today, NECA contractors and IBEW 665 are remaining vigilant in order to stop the spread of the virus.

“Our team of electricians and contractors have worked together to implement new measures that keep everyone safe while we keep getting the job done,” said Aaron Pangborn, business manager of IBEW 665. “Despite the current challenges, we continue to hold ourselves to the highest standards of safety and quality, as we have for decades.”
