At Henderson Services, we take pride in being a leading provider of electrical services, preventive maintenance, and safety education and training. We include safety education and training as one of our main services because we recognize just how important it is to every business. In our 100+ years of serving our customers, we’ve seen companies with great safety training systems in place and ones with no system in place. This means we know that the results of the latter can be disastrous. In the dynamic field of electrical construction and maintenance, prioritizing safety is not just a requirement, it's a core value that guides our every action.
Safety is not just a box to check for us—it’s foundational to every service that we offer. At Henderson Services, we adhere to a rigorous safety standard that goes above and beyond industry norms. Our safety protocols are designed to protect our team, your facility, and everyone involved in our electrical services. We focus on 3 core trainings that we bring to every job: NFPA-70E, Lock Out Tag Out (LOTO), and First Aid, CPR, and AED.
Ensuring the safety of our team members is not just about having robust protocols—it's also about empowering our employees with the knowledge and skills needed to navigate the dangers of electrical services. In 2020 alone, 2,380 workers suffered nonfatal injuries caused by exposure to electricity. We prioritize ongoing training to keep our team up-to-date on the latest industry standards and best practices and to keep them and their co-workers as safe as possible.
Our commitment to safety aligns with the National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA) standards, specifically NFPA 70E. This standard outlines safety requirements for electrical work, including the use of personal protective equipment (PPE), safe work practices, and the importance of thorough training. OSHA is using NFPA 70E as a national consensus standard, so it is vital that your team understands all the requirements. Per NFPA, anyone working on or around energized equipment needs training on electrical safe work practices. By adhering to this standard, we ensure that our team is well-prepared and our services meet the highest safety standards.
One of the most significant of our safety practices is the implementation of Lock Out Tag Out (LOTO) procedures. LOTO is a systematic method to ensure that equipment is de-energized and cannot be started up again while maintenance or service work is being performed. This crucial step prevents accidental energization, protecting our technicians and creating a safer working environment. Just one mental lapse that causes LOTO not to be completed can result in disaster for your business. At best, the mistake could be discovered before anything happens, at worst, someone could lose their life.
Is your team ready for unforeseen emergencies on-site? Anything can happen when we work near dangerous equipment. The lives of your team matter to us. That is why we train teams just like yours to be prepared for any outcome that may occur. We have certified First Aid, CPR, and AED instructors who can provide the necessary training so your employees know how to respond. Participants will receive manuals and even a certification card when the training is complete!
You may be tempted to look at this training like it’s a nice thing to have but not a priority. However, if something were to happen in your facility, and you didn’t have someone properly trained onsite, someone could lose their life. You would not only face the guilt of not having someone trained on standby, but you would ultimately face the legal consequences of not having the proper safety measures in place.
Safety is a collective responsibility that extends beyond our team to include you, our valued clients, and anyone present at the job site. We actively encourage open communication and collaboration to create a safe working environment for everyone involved. It’s about more than numbers on a page to meet an impressive metric; it’s about lives at stake and families having everyone come home at the end of the day.
At Henderson Services, we believe that it is essential for every business to prioritize safety, especially during electrical service. We understand that the success of our services is inseparable from the safety of our team and the environments we work in. By upholding the highest safety standards, investing in continuous training, and leveraging advanced preventive maintenance techniques, we not only deliver top-notch electrical solutions but also ensure the well-being of everyone involved.
