Workplace Safety

Safety is a top priority at Jackson EMC. We train our employees in safe work practices and in life-saving skills such as CPR. We also work to protect the public and educate members about safe electrical use.

Safety programs, designed to find and fix workplace hazards before workers are hurt, not only reduce injuries, but also contribute to higher productivity, lower costs and greater employee satisfaction, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration

Keys to Success

The key elements of successful injury and illness prevention programs are:

  • management leadership
  • worker participation
  • hazard identification
  • hazard prevention and control
  • training
  • regular evaluation

Big Benefits

A safe workplace and frequent training on how to work safely can have big benefits. For example, OSHA estimates that employers that do not have safety and health programs can reduce injuries by 15 to 35% by implementing an injury prevention program.

Our Commitment to Safety

Jackson EMC is committed to safe operation for our employees and members. Working with electricity is dangerous, and that is why line crew members and field service representatives attend mandatory weekly safety meetings. Our entire workforce participates in mandatory monthly safety meetings addressing such topics as CPR, first aid and fire safety.
