Safety is very important to the Paulson Electric team. We are dedicated to providing a safe working environment for all employees and everyone else on the jobsite. We maintain and follow a comprehensive safety program that makes us one of the safest contractors in the field. Paulson Electric's intense focus on leading safety indicators and giving our field personnel the skills necessary to assess, analyze and mitigate hazardous situations have led to our industry-leading EMR and low number of incidents.

Paulson Electric's safety program is led by the Safety Committee, chaired by the safety director and composed of management and field personnel from all of our locations. The Safety Committee meets regularly to discuss jobsite conditions, the safety training schedule and other data gathered through our reporting process. New personnel receive safety training before they enter a Paulson Electric jobsite and all field personnel receive regular training in areas such as personal protective equipment (PPE), lockout/tagout program, arc-flash protection and general hazard analysis and mitigation.

Paulson Electric is routinely recognized by our customers for our commitment to jobsite safety.  Paulson Electric was nominated by Ryan Companies for its Safe Contractor Recognition in 2010. The standards for nomination include creative solutions to safety, positive attitude toward safety implementation and documentation, minimal lost-time injuries and safety program enforcement. John Deere Waterloo Works has also recognized Paulson Electric for our commitment to safety.
Paulson Electric has also received industry recognition for its safety program and record. In 2013, Paulson Electric received our second straight Dubuque Area Labor Management Safe Employer award for excellence in safety.  Paulson Electric is also the four-time recipient of the National Association of Electrical Contractors (NECA) Safety Excellence Award (2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015), and three-time recipient of the NECA Zero Injury Award (2012, 2013 and 2014).
