Certificate of Special
Congressional Recognition

Presented to Consolidated Electrical Contractors during the second session of the 114th Congress by Representative John Moolenaar, paying tribute to CEC’s dedication to premium electrical contracting as well as continued safety training efforts.

The safety of our team members is paramount. We must send our team members home to their families every night the same way they came to work that day. Anything less is unacceptable. To that end, Consolidated Electrical Contractors has developed a robust safety culture.

Toolbox Talks

Toolbox Talks. They’re an important part of keeping safety at the forefront of our minds every day, and yet the are often treated as a waste of time, just listening to a unengaging speech and signing a piece of paper.

We weren’t satisfied with this approach, so we decided to innovate.

Every Monday morning, Consolidated Electric team members watch a new Toolbox Talk safety video, created in-house here at CEC and tailored to the concerns of the electrical profession. Then on Wednesday, team members take a quiz on the information shared in the Toolbox Talk, being entered to win prizes for high scores.

With this technique, we can also provide our partners with precise info on our team’s safety engagement, quickly and easily.

Training and Certifications

Being safe means being prepared. Should a hazardous situation occur, we want our team members to know exactly what to do and how to do it safely.

To accomplish this, Consolidated Electrical Contractors has invested in First Aid, CPR, OSHA 30 Construction Industry Training, and Silica Awareness training for team members.
