UPPER CUMBERLAND – The Home Builders Association of the Upper Cumberland recently partnered with other construction trade associations across Tennessee, as well as TOSHA, to participate in a statewide “Electrical Accident Prevention Stand Down” event.
Carwile Mechanical’s Residential Project Manager, Steve Shipley, led an educational program at a jobsite to discuss electrical accident prevention.
“Carwile is extremely serious about safety, and our employees participate in monthly safety training,” he said. “It is not just about complying with regulations, it is about saving lives. Carwile core values are improve quality of life; grow in knowledge and understanding; and have and maintain vision.”
Electrical accidents are one of OSHA’s Focus Four Hazards, and accidents tend to rise during the summer months, so the Home Builders Association encourages members to take time to focus on training, so accidents don't happen. Everyone on a construction site should know how to prevent electrical injuries.
HBAUC is a non-profit trade association consisting of local professional home builders and others involved in the home building industry in an 11- county region including Clay, Dekalb, Jackson, Macon, Overton, Pickett, Putnam, Smith, Trousdale, Van Buren and White.
