Safety is more than how we conduct business, it’s who we are and an integral part of our core values. Corbins Electric leads the electrical construction industry in safe contracting, as demonstrated by our 0.59 EMR. You can be assured that our safety program, training, and protocol demonstrates our commitment to the incident-free completion of our projects, reducing and eliminating costly delays, liability exposure, and re-work.
Our safety records and numerous safety awards are clear evidence of the priority we put on our safe work practices. We start at the top with a comprehensive Health and Safety Plan and internal practices/standards that exceed both OSHA and NFPA 70E. We continue with extensive safety training, which is carried through our project activity planning.
