On the Job

Our qualified electricians ensure that all electrical equipment and systems are installed according to local and national codes and regulations. This includes proper grounding and bonding, correct wiring materials as per the project, and adequate circuit protection.

Furthermore, Prairie electricians are aware of the potential for electrical hazards, including electric shock, arc flash, and electrical burns. They also know the procedures to follow to avoid such hazards and how to handle them should any problems arise.

In addition, they are trained on how to use personal protective equipment (PPE), such as gloves, hard hats, and insulating tools. Essential communication processes and other protocols are also utilized for onsite safety, especially when our electrical work requires attention to high voltage systems.

Safety Managers

Our job sites are prepped in such a way as to protect the safety of our electricians and anyone who comes into contact with them or their work. Beyond that, however, we take measures to ensure that the work we perform remains not only functional but also conforms to the highest and most rigorous electrical standards.

For example, our electrical staff includes full-time safety managers. They regularly visit our job sites to ensure that all work is done according to code and to conduct training sessions to ensure that everyone on the job site is protected — before, during, and after the job.

Our safety managers make sure that everyone is provided with the training and guidance they need and is aware of any potential hazards and the procedures involved in minimizing them. What’s more, they work to ensure that all equipment, materials, and work practices meet the highest safety standards.

Finally, our crews utilize the latest technologies to aid our safety efforts. They make use of specialized software and applications to plan and track their projects. With this software, they can identify potential risks and hazards before they even arise, avoid unnecessary materials, and make sure that everything runs efficiently and safely.
