George J. Hayden Electric and Communications contractor recently hosted its annual mandatory, company-wide Safety Day, an initiative the company has undertaken for two decades to ensure that all employees are aware of the latest industry safety standards.
Aerial lift machine training, fall protection training, proper recognition and labeling of hazardous materials and a walk-through staging area to identify violations on a simulated job site were some of the many areas of safety that Hayden Electric focused on during this year’s Safety Day program. Employees worked in a classroom environment in addition to having hands-on training.
Hayden Electric President George F. Hayden said, “This company was founded on safety and we have taken safety very seriously throughout our more than 40 years in business. We supplement this Safety Day training with ongoing traning throughout the year. We want all of our employees to be aware of their safety. We feel it’s certainly worth the investment in our employees and the company to take the time each year to do this training. People can’t be safe if they aren’t aware of how to protect themselves.”
