Congratulations to Rosendin Electric on receiving top honors from the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC).

Rosendin Electric is the nation’s largest private electrical contractor and has received top honors in safety from the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of America, including the National 2013 AGC/Willis Construction Safety Excellence Award and regional safety awards for the Oregon and California offices.

The Award was created to recognize companies that have developed outstanding safety and loss prevention programs through a combination of management commitment, employee involvement, and program innovation.

Rosendin Electric received this award for its safety record and company-wide safety culture that empowers every employee to promote on-the-job safety.

Noteworthy safety practices include:

  • “Stop Work” cards that can be used by any employee to promote safety on the job site.
  • A “no-knife” policy has also been established, requiring all employees, office and field, to use only safe tools to minimize accidents.
  • Every Apprentice maintains a safety portfolio, so Journeymen can track their equipment and procedures training.
  • All field safety personnel are equipped with tablet computers so they have access to safety performance data and can identify potentially high-risk procedures.

This is the seventh year in a row that Rosendin Electric has received such recognition from for its safety record.

According to an article in MarketWatch, published by Dow Jones & Co., “‘Every Rosendin Electric employee understands that safety is part of their job responsibility,” said Marty Rouse, Vice President of Safety for Rosendin Electric. “We have always prided ourselves on maintaining a corporate culture centered on safety.'”
