Escondido, Calif. (PRWEB) June 17, 2014
Baker Electric Solar is pleased to announce it received two National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) safety awards. Based on its safety performance in 2013, Baker Electric Solar received the District 9 Safety Excellence Award and the District 9 Zero Injury Award in the 50,000 to 100,000 man-hour category. The Escondido-based solar installer is a member of the NECA San Diego Chapter.
NECA’s Safety Excellence and Zero Injury Awards program is a prestigious safety recognition program focused on recognizing companies that excel in their safety and health programs. Awards are given to member companies that consistently have OSHA recordable injury and fatality rates at levels lower than the industry standard. In addition, the winning companies implement internal company safety practices that go beyond required compliance.
With the best safety record in its category, Baker Electric Solar received the 2014 NECA Safety Excellence Award District 9. The honor was based on a comparison of its 2013 safety performance data to the Bureau of Labor Statistics data, as well as compared to the safety records of other District 9 electrical contractors in the 50,000 to 100,000 man-hour category. A cumulative score was established based on points achieved for having the lowest injury and illness rates and the insurance industries Experience Modification Rate (EMR).
In addition, Baker Electric Solar received the 2014 NECA Zero Injury Award based on its exemplary safety performance and the fact that it worked the full calendar year of 2013 without any reportable incidents.
“It’s a distinct honor to receive these two respected NECA safety awards,” said President Mike Teresso. “At Baker Electric Solar we are extremely proud of our health and safety culture. The safety and well-being of our employees, customers and suppliers is paramount. These awards are a testament to our management and employees who make safety their number one priority.”
“On behalf of NECA, I would like to commend Baker Electric Solar for achieving the 2014 Zero Injury award. Your commitment to safety raises your company above the rest, and we congratulate you on this achievement,” said NECA CEO John M. Grau. “This award recognizes your dedication to achieving the industry's highest safety standards and your commitment to providing the safest possible work environment.”
