May 17, 2023 MYR Group Subsidiaries Awarded NECA 2023 Safety Excellence and Zero Injury


At MYR Group, safety is a core value deeply embedded in our culture, which has shown immensely across our subsidiaries. This month, the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) recognized five of our subsidiaries for Safety Excellence and Zero Injury achievements: E.S. Boulos, Harlan Electric, L.E. Myers, Sturgeon Electric, and Sturgeon Electric California.

NECA announced its association’s premier recognition program and acknowledged contractor’s safety performance on April 24. Thirteen districts across these four MYR Group subsidiaries earned Safety Excellence achievements, and four districts earned Zero Injury recognition for their 2022 achievements.

Accomplishing Safety Excellence and Zero Injury is an incredible achievement that has been a company-wide focus, and implementation throughout our districts. Consistently working towards a common goal, safety is emphasized through strong communication and diligence-driven work, which is why it is important to have seasoned, experienced, qualified crew foremen and a stable workforce. Our safety department helps manage cases and identify issues before they become an injury or incidents. This supports our district’s ability to keep a stable workflow and procedural process to ensure alignment of expectations.

Safety Excellence Winners:

  • E.S. Boulos: Westbrook, Auburn, MA districts
  • Sturgeon Electric: Phoenix, AZ; Tucson, AZ; Denver, CO; Henderson, CO; Salt Lake City, UT
  • Sturgeon Electric California: Chino, CA district

Congratulations To All!

NECA’s Recognition of Safety Achievement program is an elite safety recognition focused on recognizing thriving companies that excel in multiple areas of their safety and health programs. Member companies that consistently have OSHA recordable injury and fatality rates at levels lower than the industry standard and implement internal company safety practices above and beyond basic compliance will often receive the recognition.

Congratulations to all our districts on your achievement and for keeping safety at the root of our company.
