ASSP and National Electrical Contractors Collaborate on Worker Safety

Nov. 5, 2020
The two organizations plan to increase opportunities for continuing education and ensure access to valuable training programs.

The American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) and National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) announced on Nov. 2 they have signed a three-year memorandum of understanding that brings the organizations together to advance workplace safety and health in the electrical construction industry.

The two organizations will share best practices and work cooperatively to advance issues of common interest, increase opportunities for continuing education, and ensure access to valuable training programs.

“We recognize the benefits of collaboration to improve occupational safety and health practices and outcomes,” said ASSP CEO Jennifer McNelly. “We strive to eliminate worker illnesses, injuries and fatalities across the board, and organizations working together improves the ability to achieve that result.”

NECA also prioritizes workplace safety by offering publications, webinars, software and training courses to help electrical contractors maintain safe worksites, develop their own corporate safety programs and comply with federal regulations.

“We work to raise the profile of worker safety in our industry, so cooperating with ASSP brings a new level of expertise to that effort,” said NECA CEO David Long. “I am excited for the good this collaboration can do, not just for our member companies, but the electrical construction industry as a whole.”
