Sturgeon Electric is an active partner with regulatory and industry agencies working towards improving the safety of electric and telecommunication construction workers across the nation. We participate on the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) A10 Committee. The A10 Committee develops and publishes standards relating to the protection of employees and the public from hazards associated with construction and demolition operations. These include documents covering the safe use of cranes, derricks, aerial lifts and other equipment used by electrical contractors. The committee also develops standards on more general safety subjects such as lockout/tag out procedures and work in confined spaces.
Several employees are members of the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE), the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA), the National Safety Council (NSC), the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and the Voluntary Protection Program Participants Association (VPPPA).
Sturgeon Electric is actively engaged in promoting safety in the community. Our safety professionals have volunteered their time to speak on college campuses, in apprenticeship training programs and in various safety forums and discussions throughout the nation.
Sturgeon Electric has donated safety items and safety gifts, such as cut-resistant gloves to Joint Apprenticeship Education Training Committees (JAETC’s) and carbon monoxide detectors to local fire departments for distribution to underprivileged families.
