The company, which celebrated 75 years in business last year, provides electrical contracting services to general contractors and facility owners for various sizes of new construction, renovation and expansion projects in the industrial, commercial, healthcare and federal market sectors.
“Safety is a Core Value and an integral part of our company culture. This accomplishment speaks to our employees taking this value to heart on a daily basis,” said Chris Moore, President of CarolinaPower.
Tony Morris, Safety Manager, noted “A ‘brother’s keeper’ mindset is evident at all levels of our workforce, beginning with the new hire orientation process A few years ago, we rolled out a Behavior-Based Safety program to our employees and subcontractors. We have been purposeful about keeping this concept top-of-mind and we are definitely seeing the results.”
