J. Becher has reached another HUGE milestone - 3 Years of No Lost Time! That's 1,098 consecutive days of ZERO lost time....in the construction industry, this is a milestone to be celebrated. Our commitment to safety over the years has always been very important to all of us, but especially this year, as this accomplishment is only seen by 1-2% of companies in our industry. 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.
We reward our team each year with $120 gift cards to Target, Cabela's, Holiday, and Amazon as a small token of appreciation to our incredible employees. We've always practiced safe work and followed strict safety standards; however, four years ago we launched a more formal safety program Committed to Zero© Incidents & Injuries that communicates safety protocol and provides tools, information, and training to ensure safe work practices throughout the company and at every job site.
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!
