Maureen Parkin, member of IEC Oregon Will Represent IEC on SBREFA Panel
Maureen Parkin with Parkin Electric, Inc., a member of IEC (Independent Electrical Contractors) Oregon, has agreed to represent IEC and small businesses on a Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (SBREFA) panel. The panel will include small business representatives from many trades organized by the Small Business Administration. The panel will provide comments to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) on the newly proposed OSHA regulation labeled Injury & Illness Prevention Program (I2P2). OSHA is required to have input from small businesses about the economic impact a regulation may have on small businesses.
Parkin Electric has been injury free for 3 years!
Parkin Electric is proud to note that we have not had a recordable injury for three years, nor have we not had any days missed from work because of injury since 2001. This stellar safety record (our safety Mod Rate is .79) is an indicator of the effort and commitment that our electricians and management maintain to working safely. The consistent use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) (safety glasses, hearing protection, gloves, and hardhats) by Parkin Electric Electricians, and the practice of reviewing each job for hazards and developing a plan (written) to work safely on the each job, contributes to Parkin Electric’s injury free workplace.
Our view is that safety is not a sometimes thing…. a good solid safety culture means working on improvement, everyday, all day, automatically!
Keep up the good work folks!
