NECA Brings Timely Safety Expertise to the Industry

SAFETY LEADER, a new magazine produced by the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA), launched this month with its first issue being sent to more than 80,000 electrical personnel across the United States. Bundled with NECA’s flagship publication, ELECTRICAL CONTRACTOR, each SAFETY LEADER issue will deliver content geared toward electrical professionals working in the industry.

“Safety is a commitment made by every NECA contractor, every day. That’s why NECA is excited about launching a new magazine to provide more value and industry knowledge to our members. SAFETY LEADER will serve as a resource, focusing on safety best practices, leadership and technical resources that directly affect industry professionals,” said David Long, NECA’s CEO.

The new quarterly publication will highlight the importance of safety and industry news, OSHA rulemaking, training, on-site practices, safety-related products and services, a view of workers in the field and important resources. Content will be informative to all types of industry participants, including those working in outside line and inside electrical construction.

“Keeping the workforce safe, healthy and productive is a priority for the National Electrical Contractors Association,” said Michael Johnston, NECA’s executive director of Standards and Safety, adding that the goal of driving down incident rates was the impetus behind launching SAFETY LEADER.
