September 5, 2020 marks a huge milestone for J. Becher - 1,000 Days of No Lost Time! This is a huge success, for the company and our employees. Our commitment to safety over the years has always been very important to all of us, but especially this year, as the 1,000 days mile-mark is only seen by 1-2% of companies in our industry- this is huge! Lost time occurs when an employee is injured while carrying out a work-related task for their employer and is unable to return to work within a three-day time frame.
How we reached this landmark:
This is a HUGE milestone for our employees and our company! We take safety at J. Becher very seriously - your safety, the safety of the systems we install, and the safety of our electricians and technicians. Our in-house Safety Director coordinates our safety program and participates in programs sponsored by MN OSHA, National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA), and our insurance provider.
Committed to Zero © is our formal safety program, a company-wide safety initiative that focuses on a commitment to zero incidents, accidents, and lost time. It communicates expectations and provides tools, information, and training to ensure safe work methods and focuses on personal responsibility, accountability, and being aware of work surroundings and expectations. The program utilizes resources and training materials provided by NECA and our insurance provider.
We are committed to providing a safe workplace for employees and everyone involved on a job site. This includes managing our safety program and work practices, continuously educating employees on safety, and providing the necessary tools and equipment to safely perform our work while reducing recognized hazards.
Thank You J. Becher Employees!
