Safety Training & Initiatives

Westmoreland Electric is committed to the continuous training of all of our management and employees to ensure that they are all equipped with the necessary knowledge to work safely and avoid potential accidents.  Westmoreland Electric conducts weekly safety talks at each jobsite and in our warehouse complex as part of our continuing education and safety awareness program.

All new employees are given a safety orientation before they start working.  This orientation reinforces our commitment to safety and trains them in all the safety policies in our safety manual.  They are also tested for drug and alcohol use before they are allowed to start working for Westmoreland Electric.

Once each year we have a company meeting where we provide copies of all of our new and revised sections of our company safety manual to each employee.  All of the new and revised sections are explained in detail and then we have a question and answer period to ensure that all of the employees fully understand any changes.

We are committed to provide a safe working environment for all of our employees
