Awards are given to member companies that consistently have OSHA recordable injury and fatality rates at levels lower than the industry standard, and implement internal company safety practices above and beyond basic compliance.

Joint Safety Committee


NECA - IBEW Joint Safety Committee Meeting Minutes
IBEW Local 48 labor representatives and Oregon-Columbia Chapter NECA Safety Managers meet monthly to discuss jobsite safety concerns, review new safety regulations and develop industry best practices to elevate safety for our industry.  The committee was recognized at the 2009 Oregon Governor's Occupational Safety and Health Conference for their achievements in working together to solve difficult safety challenges.  Committee meetings every other evenly numbered month, on the third Thursday at 2:30 PM in the NIETC conference room.

Toolbox Talks


Safety Tool Box Talks are used in the workplace to address site specific safety concerns.  They can be used to document initial and refresher training as well as inform other subs or GCs of workplace safety concerns.  The NIETC Safety Talks are organized by topic and month but can be used in any manner that best fits your needs. 

Safety Certifications


Within OSHA standards there are many applications that require employers to train their employees to different levels of competency depending upon the degree of hazard, exposure or level of responsibility.  Examples include general awareness training, competent person training, qualified person training and proof of training and competency through a formal certification process.  The NIETC provides a wide variety of safety training, some of which qualifies or certifies the students to perform specific tasks.
